A Verse may find him who a Sermon flies,
And turn Delight into a Sacrifice.

-GEORGE HERBERT.

[ocr errors]

Who will not honour Noble Numbers, when
Verses outlive the bravest Deeds of Men?

-ROBERT HERRICK.

My altars are the mountains and the ocean,
Earth, air, stars,--all that springs from the great Whole
Who hath produced and will receive the soul.

-LORD BYRON.

Let our God's praise Go bravely through the world at last.

- ROBERT BROWNING.

Be not afraid to prayto pray is right;
Pray, if thou canst with hope ; but ever pray,
Though hope be weak or sick with long delay;
Pray in the darkness if there be no light.

-HARTLEY COLERIDGE.

Prayer-
A stream which, from the fountains of the heart
Issuing, however feebly, nowhere flows
Without access of unexpected strength.

-WILLIAM WORDSWORTH.

More things are wrought by prayer Than this world dreams of.

-ALFRED TENNYSON.
