Strona 24 - Thou shalt in no wise behold me; but look towards the mountain, and if it stand firm in its place, then shalt thou see me. But when his Lord appeared with glory in the mount, he reduced it to dust. And Moses fell down in a swoon. And when he came to himself, he said, Praise be unto thee! I turn unto thee with repentance, and I am the first of true believers.
Strona 52 - The love of thee flows just as much As that of ebbing self subsides ; Our hearts, their scantiness is such, Bear not the conflict of two rival tides.
Strona 62 - Chequer-board of Nights and Days ; Hither and thither moves, and checks, and slays; And one by one back in the Closet lays.
