Strona 3 - They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters ; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
Strona 142 - Whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so do unto them ; for this is the law and the prophets.
Strona 143 - God and man, are no less easily retained, and made a standard by which to judge our own hearts;— To love the Lord our God with all our hearts, with all our minds, with all our strength ; and our neighbour, or fellow creature, as ourselves. " Love worketh no ill to his neighbour;" therefore, if you have true benevolence, you will never do any thing injurious to individuals or to society.
Strona 130 - Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. " For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
Strona 138 - And does not your inmost heart resolve that this shall be the chief and constant object of its wishes and pursuit, through the whole course of your life ? If you are not insensible to that desire of happiness, which seems woven into our nature, you cannot surely be unmoved by the prospect of such a transcendent degree of it; and that, continued to all eternity — perhaps continually increasing.

When the captain died he forsook the ship, and we saw him no more.
Strona 137 - ... immediate presence of God himself; to be able to comprehend and admire his adorable perfections in a high degree, though still far short of their infinity ; to be conscious of his love and favour, and to rejoice in the light of his countenance ! But here all imagination fails. We can form no idea of that bliss which may be communicated to us by such a near approach to the source of all beauty and all good; we must content ourselves with believing that it is what mortal eye hath not seen, nor...
Strona 143 - Love worketh no ill to his neighbour;" therefore, if you have true benevolence, you will never do any thing injurious to individuals or to society. Now, all crimes whatever are, in their remoter consequences at least, if not immediately and apparently, injurious to the society in which we live. It is impossible to love God, without desiring to please him, and, as far as we are able, to resemble him ; therefore, the love of God must lead to every virtue in...
Strona 142 - ... impossible to read the life and death of our blessed Saviour, without renewing and increasing in our hearts that love, and reverence, and gratitude towards him, which is so justly due for all he did and suffered for us ! Every word that fell from his lips...
