Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


For I felt that the Lord of the world, who kept
Watch of his work while others slept,
Would surely scatter abroad in me
The seeds for His own eternity—
Would gather and garner from all my deeds
Some little wheat out of many weeds.
Samuel W. Duffield.—Warp and Woof: A Spring Day.
