Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1875 Excerpt: ... lay, Then woke to life again: Exemplifying how that they Who on this earth the Lord obey, From death awake to speed away To life devoid of pain. 19.

Then night's shades veil each fertile dell So late with sunshine bright; And on the ear with soothing spell Falls the clear notes of philomel, While some adjacent village bell Proclaims the hour of night. 27.
