  • In the cross of Christ I glory,
    Towering o'er the wrecks of time;
    All the light of sacred story
    Gathers round its head sublime.
    • Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 171.
  • Chance and change are busy ever;
    Man decays, and ages move;
    But His mercy waneth never;
    God is wisdom, God is love.
    • Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 272.
