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. 1896 Excerpt: ...dance with death, to beat the ground,5 Than that the victor Hours should scorn The long result of love, and boast: "Behold the man that loved and lost! But all he was is overworn."6 in. O Sorrow, cruel fellowship! O Priestess in the vaults of Death! O sweet and bitter in a breath! What whispers from thy lying lip?'

When Lazarus left his charnel-cave, And home to Mary's house returned, Was this demanded--if he yearned To hear her weeping by his grave? "Where wert thou, brother, those four days?" There lives no record of reply, Which telling what it is to die Had surely added praise to praise.11 From every house the neighbors met, The streets were filled with joyful sound, A solemn gladness even crowned The purple brows of Olivet. Behold a man raised up by Christ!-The rest r...
