Stranica 81 - ... Him, who deigns in me to live, What better gift have I to give, O my poor earthly life, than thee? Too glad of thy decay, So but I may the sooner see That Face of sweetest majesty, For which I pine away ; While evermore I weep and sigh, Dying, because I do not die. Absent from Thee, my Saviour dear, I call not Life this living here, But a long dying agony, The sharpest I have known ; And I myself, myself to see In such a rack of misery, For very pity moan ; And ever, ever weep and sigh, Dying,...
Stranica 82 - Ah, Lord ! my light and living breath ! Take me, oh take me, from this death, And burst the bars that sever me From my true life above ; Think, how I die Thy face to see, And cannot live away from Thee, O my eternal Love ! And ever, ever weep and sigh, Dying because I do not die. I weary of this endless strife, I weary of this dying life — This living death — this heavy chain — This torment of delay, In which her sins my soul detain ; Ah, when shall it be mine ? — Ah, when With my last breath...
Stranica 80 - For evermore I weep and sigh, Dying, because I do not die. To Him, who deigns in me to live, What better gift have I to give, O my poor earthly life, than thee? Too glad of thy decay, So but I may the sooner see That Face of sweetest majesty, For which I pine away ; While evermore I weep and sigh, Dying, because I do not die.
Stranica 80 - The life above, the life on high, Alone is life in verity ; Nor can we life at all enjoy, Till this poor life is o'er; Then, O sweet Death ! no longer fly From me, who, ere my time to die, Am dying evermore; For evermore I weep and sigh, Dying because I do not die. To Him who deigns in me to live, What better gift have I to give, O my poor earthly life, than thee ? Too glad of thy decay ; So but I may the sooner see That...
Stranica 78 - This union of divinest love, By which I live a life above, Setting my heart at liberty, My God to me enchains ; But then to see His majesty In such a base captivity ! It so my spirit pains ; That evermore I weep and sigh, Dying because I do not die. n. Ah, what a length does life appear ! How hard to bear this exile here! How hard, from weary day to day, To pine without relief! The yearning hope to break away From this my prison-house of clay, Inspires so sharp a grief; That evermore I weep and sigh,...
Stranica 80 - And end thy long delay ; For evermore I weep and sigh, Dying because I do not die. The life above, the life on high, Alone is life in verity ; Nor can we life at all enjoy, Till this poor life is o'er; Then, O...
Stranica 54 - Let us remember, daughters, that true perfection consists in the love of God and our neighbour ; the more perfectly we observe these two precepts, the more perfect we shall be. Our whole rule and constitutions serve for nothing else, but as so many means for enabling us to do this with more perfection.
Stranica 81 - When with the hope I comfort me, At least in Heav'n of seeing Thee, The thought that I may lose Thee yet With anguish thrills me through ; And by a thousand fears beset, My very hope inspires regret, And multiplies...
Stranica 82 - In such a rack of misery, For very pity moan ; And ever, ever weep and sigh, Dying, because I do not die. Ah! Lord, my Light and living Breath, Take me, oh, take me from this death, And burst the bars that sever me From my true Life above ! Think how I die Thy Face to see, And cannot live away from Thee, O my eternal Love ! And ever, ever, weep and sigh, Dying, because I do not die.
Stranica 15 - St. Joseph's, and the bishop wished that the same attention should be paid to him, as to his own person. I gave him an account of the foundation with all truth and simplicity, because it is my desire thus to act with my superiors, come what may, since they stand in the place of God.
