Σελίδα 6 - Many hours did he spend there, in the winter evenings, with a pleasure to which before he was a stranger; and, while some of the members of the family were plotting how to put him to shame, he was eating in secret of that bread " which the world knoweth not of.
Σελίδα 9 - Saviour, and everlasting portion ; and to offer up myself to his service, to be ruled, sanctified, and saved by him.

Σελίδα 103 - ... through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen. Epistle, Eph. vi : 10-17.
