Página 21 - The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: Thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
Página 160 - HOW few who from their youthful day Look on to what their life may be, Painting the visions of the way In colors soft, and bright, and free ; How few who to such paths have brought The hopes and dreams of early thought ! For God, through ways they have not known, Will lead His own.
