Seite 198 - In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society in Aldersgate Street, where one was reading Luther's preface to the Epistle to the Romans. About a quarter before nine, while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed.
Seite 198 - I could scarce reconcile myself at first to this strange way of preaching in the fields, of which he set me an example on Sunday ; having been all my life (till very lately) so tenacious of every point relating to decency and order, that I should have thought the saving of souls almost a sin, if it had not been done in a church.
Seite 44 - Ne'er tell me of glories serenely adorning The close of our day, the calm eve of our night : — Give me back, give me back the wild freshness of Morning, Her clouds and her tears are worth Evening's best light.
Seite 46 - Lord with holy worship. 3 It is the Lord, that commandeth the waters : it is the glorious God, that maketh the thunder. 4 It is the Lord, that ruleth the sea; the voice of the Lord is mighty in operation : the voice of the Lord is a glorious voice. 5 The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedar-trees : yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Libanus.

Seite 289 - The good Mr John Wesley has done in America, under God, is inexpressible. His name is very precious among the people ; and he has laid such a foundation, that I hope neither men nor devils will ever be able to shake.
Seite 289 - It is now two years and almost four months since I left my native country, in order to teach the Georgian Indians the nature of Christianity, but what have I learned myself in the meantime ? Why (what I the least of all suspected), that I, who went to America to convert others, was never myself converted to God; (I am not sure of this).
Seite 329 - ... to the wilderness of Paran. 2 And there was a man in Maon, whose possessions were in Carmel; and the man was very great, and he had three thousand sheep, and a thousand goats: and he was shearing his sheep in Carmel.
