Strona 356 - Both turn'd, and under open sky ador'd The GOD that made both sky, air, earth, and heav'n Which they beheld, the moon's resplendent globe, And starry pole. Thou also mad'st the night, Maker Omnipotent, and thou the day...

Strona 41 - ... qui l'appaife : celui qui craint la religion , & qui la hait, eft comme les bêtes fauvages qui mordent la chaîne qui les empêche de fe jetter fur ceux qui partent : celui qui n'a point du tout de religion , eft cet animal terrible qui ne fent fa liberté que lorfqu'il déchire & qu'il dévore..
Strona 350 - Or hearestthou, rather, pure etherial stream, Whose fountain who shall tell ? Before the Sun, Before the Heavens thou wert ; and at the voice Of God, as with a mantle, did invest The rising world of waters, dark and deep, Won from the void and formless infinite.
Strona 356 - Thy goodnefs iufimte, both when we wake, And .when we feek, as now, thy gift of fleep. In the firft pair of fyllables the accent may deviate from the rigour of exactnefs, without any unpleafing diminution of harmony, as may be obferved in the lines already cited, and more remarkably in this, — — — Thou alfo mad'ft the night, Maler omnipotent ! and thou the day.
