Σελίδα 137 - Hark, how he groans ! while nature shakes, And earth's strong pillars bend ! The temple's veil in sunder breaks, The solid marbles rend. 3 "Tis done ! the precious ransom's paid ; " Receive my soul !" he cries ; See where he bows his sacred head! He bows his head and dies ! 4 But soon, he'll break death's envious chain, And in full glory shine ; O Lamb of God! was ever pain, Was ever love like thine ! HYMN 64.

Σελίδα 136 - To bleed and die for me ! 2 Hark, how he groans! while nature shakes, And earth's strong pillars bend ; The temple's veil in sunder breaks, The solid marbles rend. 3 'Tis done ! the precious rans9m's paid ;

Σελίδα 36 - Can you, then, wonder that in times like these, when bankruptcy, convicted fraud, and imputed felony are found in a station not far beneath that of your Lordships, the lowest, though once most useful portion of the people, should forget their duty in their distresses, and become only less guilty than one of their representatives? But while the exalted offender can find means to baffle the law, new capital punishments must be devised, new snares of death must be spread for the 100 wretched mechanic,...
Σελίδα 38 - ... outlaws ? Are these the remedies for a starving and desperate populace ? Will the famished wretch who has braved your bayonets be appalled by your gibbets? When death is a relief, and the only relief it appears that you will afford him, will he be dragooned into tranquillity ? Will that which could not be effected by your grenadiers, be accomplished by your executioners ? If you proceed by the forms of law, where is your evidence?
Σελίδα 38 - ... from a family which he lately supported in peaceful industry, and which it is not his fault that he can no longer so support — suppose this man, and there are ten thousand such from whom you may select your victims, dragged into court, to be tried for this new offence by this new law ; still, there are two things wanting to convict and condemn him ; and these are, in my opinion, twelve butchers for a jury, and a Jefferies for a judge...
Σελίδα 38 - Is there not blood enough upon your penal code, that more must be poured forth to ascend to heaven and testify against you?
