The Power Of Armies Is A Visible Thing
The power of Armies is a visible thing,
Formal and circumscribed in time and space;
But who the limits of that power shall trace
Which a brave People into light can bring

The Happiest Day
The happiest day-the happiest hour
My seared and blighted heart hath known,
Edgar Allan Poe
The power to be true to You
The power to be true to You,

'Tis a strange mystery, the power of words!
Life is in them, and death. A word can send
The crimson colour hurrying to the cheek.
Hurrying with many meanings; or can turn

In Deo Fides

Before Thy throne, in reverence, we kneel;
We cannot realize Thine infinity;
Beholding not, we can Thy presence feel;

Chill Penury And Winter's Power
Chill penury and winter's power
Upon my soul so hard have prest,
That I would fain have seen no more
