It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.) For that ye ought to say : If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that ; but now ye rejoice in your boastings.
Seite 227 - With the saints' and angels' quire. " 0 my soul, of heavenly birth, Do thou scorn this basest earth ; Place not here thy joy and mirth, Where of bliss is greatest dearth.

Seite 227 - Oh, my soul of heavenly birth, Do thou scorn this basest earth, Place not here thy joy and mirth, Where of bliss is greatest dearth. From below thy mind remove, And affect the things above ; Set thy heart and fix thy love Where thou truest joyes shall prove. To me grace, O Father, send, On thee wholly to depend, That all may to thy glory tend ; So let me live, so let me end.
Seite 250 - Bethlem Gabor, whose real name was Gabriel Bethlem, a native of Transylvania, was well descended, though without patrimony, and long lived in such obscurity, that when he was thirty years of age he could not gain credit for twenty pounds. His wife, like himself, was allied to nobility ; and though without a portion, admirably qualified by her economy to save a fortune. Even after her husband's elevation, she disdained not to superintend the culinary arrangements, being considered...
Seite 226 - This is a joye — this is true pleasure, If we best things make our treasure, And enjoy them at full leisure, Evermore in richest measure.
