Page 446 - How that, in a great trial of affliction, the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
Page 357 - UNION strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging breathless on thy fate. We know what master laid thy keel; What workmen wrought thy ribs of steel; Who made each mast and sail and rope; What anvils rang, what hammers beat; In what a forge and what a heat Were shaped the anchors of thy hope.
