- Now Spring returns; but not to me returns.
- "Elegy on Spring" (1767), line 1
- In every pang that rends the heart
The Man of Sorrows had a part
- "Where high the heavenly temple stands"
- 'Tis very vain for me to boast
How small a price my Bible cost,
The day of judgment will make clear
'Twas very cheap — or very dear,
