Página 173 - there is more joy in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, than over ninety and nine just persons that need no repentance.
Página 114 - The calm retreat, the silent shade, With prayer and praise agree, And seem by thy sweet bounty made, For those who follow thee. 3 There if thy Spirit touch the soul, And grace her mean abode, Oh ! with what peace, and joy, and love, She communes with her God. 4 There, like the nightingale, she pours Her solitary lays, Nor asks a witness of her song, Nor thirsts for human praise.

Damned below Judas, more abhorred than he was, Who for a few pence sold his holy Master ! Twice betrayed, Jesus me, the last delinquent, Deems the profanest.
