Page 123 - O too late Beloved ! O too soon adored, by me ! For in the fields of immortality My spirit should at first have worshipped thine, A divine presence in a place divine...
Page 111 - YES! hope may with my strong desire keep pace, And I be undeluded, unbetrayed ; For if of our affections none find grace In sight of Heaven, then wherefore hath God made The world which we inhabit? Better plea . Love cannot have, than, that, in loving thee, Glory to that eternal Peace is paid. Who such divinity to thee imparts As hallows and makes pure all gentle hearts.
