Stran 620 - THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER, 0, say, can you sec, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming: And the rocket's red glare, and bombs
Stran 620 - there: O, say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave ? On that shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes. What is that which
Stran 486 - foundations of the world were made known, At thy rebuke, O Lord ! At the blast of the breath of thy nostrils, He sent from above, he took me. He drew me out of many waters."

Stran 304 - cunning way. Mason of his walls of clay, And the architectural plans Of gray hornet artisans 1 For, eschewing books and tasks, Nature answers all he asks; Hand in hand with her he walks, Face to face with her he talks. Part and parcel of her joy, — Blessings on the barefoot boy 1
Stran 462 - O, be swift, my soul, to answer Him ! be jubilant, my feet! Our God is marching on. In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me: As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is marching on. THOMAS WILLIAM PARSONS.
Stran 486 - Hail-stones and coals of fire. The Lord also thundered in the heavens, And the highest gave his voice ; Hail-stones and coals of fire. Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them, And he shot out his lightnings, and discomfited them. Then the channels of waters were seen, • And
Stran 620 - THE OLD OAKEN BUCKET. How dear to this heart are the scenes of my childhood, When fond recollection presents them to • view! The orchard, the meadow, the deep tangled wild wood, And every loved spot which my infancy knew; The wide spreading pond, and the mill which stood by it, The bridge and the rock where the cataract fell; The
