Seite 5 - One day telleth another: and one night certifieth another. There is neither speech nor language : but their voices are heard among them. Their sound is gone out into all lands : and their words into the ends of the world.
Seite 17 - Call fire, and sword, and desolation, A godly thorough reformation, Which always must be carried on, And still be doing, never done ; As if religion were intended For nothing else but to be mended. A sect whose chief devotion lies In odd perverse antipathies, In falling out with that or this, And finding somewhat still amiss ; More peevish, cross, and splenetic, Than dog distract, or monkey sick ; That with more care keep holy-day The wrong, than others the right way ; Compound for sins they are...
Seite 133 - They rave, recite, and madden round the land. What walls can guard me, or what shades can hide? They pierce my thickets, through my grot they glide, By land, by water, they renew the charge, They stop the chariot, and they board the barge.
Seite 71 - From all sedition, privy conspiracy, and rebellion ; from all false doctrine, heresy, and schism ; from hardness of heart, and contempt of thy Word and Commandment, Good Lord, deliver us.
Seite 223 - Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him ? But ye have despised the poor.
Seite 58 - For he was of that stubborn crew Of errant saints, whom all men grant To be the true church militant ; Such as do build their faith upon The holy text of pike and gun ; Decide all controversies by Infallible artillery ; And prove their doctrine orthodox By apostolic blows and knocks...
Seite 201 - His sermons were neither long nor earnest, but uttered with a grave zeal and a humble voice ; his eyes always fixed on one place, to prevent his imagination from wandering, insomuch that he seemed to study as he spake.
Seite 109 - With manners wond'rous winning ; And never followed wicked ways,— Unless when she was sinning. At church, in silks and satins new, With hoop of monstrous size ; She never slumber'd in her pew,— But when she shut her eyes.
Seite 58 - Church militant; Such as do build their faith upon The holy text of pike and gun; Decide all controversies by Infallible artillery, And prove their doctrine orthodox, By apostolic blows and knocks; Call fire, and sword, and desolation, A godly, thorough reformation. Which always must be carried on, And still be doing, never done; As if religion were intended For nothing else but to be mended...
Seite 200 - No, indeed: but an obscure, harmless man; a man in poor clothes, his loins usually girt in a coarse gown, or canonical coat; of a mean stature, and stooping, and yet more lowly in the thoughts of his soul; his body worn out, not with age, but study and holy mortifications; his face full of heat-pimples, begot by his unactivity and sedentary life.
