Page 14 - And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: and after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

THE SOUND OF THE SEA.

Page 36 - In the path that she has trod ; May we worship at the altar Of the great and living God. 5 Lord, may angels watch above us, Keep us all from error free, May they guard, and guide, and love us, Till, like her, we go to thee.
Page 56 - I am weak and fearful with despair. Where is it? Tell me where. Friend, thou must trust in him who trod before The desolate paths of life ; Must bear in meekness, as he meekly bore, Sorrow, and pain, and strife!
