Landward in his wrath he scourges The toiling surges, Laden with seaweed from the rocks : From Bermuda's reefs ; from edges Of sunken ledges, In some far-off, bright Azore ; From Bahama, and the dashing, Silver-flashing Surges of San Salvador...

Página 131 - I thank thee, uncreated sun, That thy bright .beams on me have shined; I thank thee who hast overthrown My foes, and healed my wounded mind. I thank thee, whose enlivening voice Bids my freed heart in thee rejoice.
Página 417 - Here at the fountain's sliding foot, Or at some fruit-tree's mossy root, Casting the body's vest aside, My soul into the boughs does glide; There, like a bird, it sits and sings, Then whets and combs its silver wings, And, till prepared for longer flight, Waves in its plumes the various light.
Página 316 - Have not I commanded thee ? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Página 127 - I'll be an angel, and with the angels stand, A crown upon my forehead, a harp within my hand...
