Page 3 - LORD, thou hast searched me out, and known me : thou knowest my down-sitting, and mine up-rising ; thou understandest my thoughts long before. 2 Thou art about my path, and about my bed ; and spiest out all my ways.

Page 34 - The voice of joy and health is in the dwellings of the righteous ; the right hand of the LORD bringeth mighty things to pass.
Page 5 - My hourly dependence is upon Him, and all my expectations through an eternity to come. From Him I have received my life, my being, every power and faculty of soul and body. Every innocent delight I enjoy, is His gift: in every danger, He is my present help. No power but His could guide me safely through the intricate mazes of life.

Page 41 - ... and good,humoured, are very useful in the world. They maintain peace and happiness, and spread a thankful temper among all that live around them. Thus far in general : but it is well worth considering in particular my own duties and obligations. Who are the people that I ought especially to study to make happy ? Are they parents ? — What a debt of gratitude do I owe them for all their...
Page 51 - The natural enjoyments of life are dispensed to irs by a gracious Providence, to mitigate its natural evils, and make our passage through it not only supportable, but, at fit times and seasons, so far pleasant, as to make us go on with vigour, cheerfulness, and gratitude ; and to give us some kind of earnest of what we are bid to hope hereafter ; some kind of faint notion what happiness is; some sensible assurances...
