The Sabbath bell,
That over wood, and wild, and mountain dell
Wanders so far, chasing all thoughts unholy
With sounds most musical, most melancholy.
ROGERS: _Human Life,_ Line 515.
Yes, child of suffering, thou mayst well be sure
He who ordained the Sabbath loves the poor!
OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES: _A Rhymed Lesson. Urania._

POPE: _Epis. to Arbuthnot,_ Line 12.
Nor can his blessed soul look down from heaven,
Or break the eternal sabbath of his rest.
DRYDEN: _Spanish Friar,_ Act v., Sc. 2.
The Sabbath brings its kind release,
And Care lies slumbering on the lap of Peace.
OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES: _A Rhymed Lesson,_ Line 229.
Take the Sunday with you through the week,
And sweeten with it all the other days.
LONGFELLOW: _Michael Angelo,_ Pt. i., 5.
