God! sing, ye meadow-streams, with gladsome voice!
Ye pine-groves, with your soft and soul-like sounds!
And they too have a voice, you piles of snow,
And in their perilous fall shall thunder, God!
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge,
Hymn before Sunrise in the Vale of Chamouni
God is as great in minuteness as He is in magnitude.
- Charles Caleb Colton
But, oh, Thou bounteous Giver of all good, Thou art, of all Thy gifts, Thyself thy crown!
- William Cowper
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants his footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
- William Cowper,
Hymn--Light Shining out of Darkness
God never meant that man should scale the Heavens
By strides of human wisdom. In his works,
Though wondrous, he commands us in his word
To seek him rather where his mercy shines.
- William Cowper, Task (bk. III, l. 217)
Acquaint thyself with God, if thou would'st taste
His works. Admitted once to his embrace,
Thou shalt perceive that thou wast blind before:
Thine eye shall be instructed; and thine heart
Made pure shall relish with divine delight
Till then unfelt, what hands divine have wrought.
- William Cowper, Task (bk. V, l. 782)
But who with filial confidence inspired,
Can lift to Heaven an unpresumptuous eye,
And smiling say, My Father made them all.
- William Cowper, Task
(bk. V, The Winter Morning Walk, l. 745)
We never know through what Divine mysteries of compensation the great Father of the universe may be carrying out His sublime plan; but those three words, "God is love," ought to contain, to every doubting soul, the solution of all things.
- Mrs. Craik (pseudonym of Dinah Maria Mulock)
God made them as stubble to our swords.
- Oliver Cromwell
The more I know of astronomy, the more I believe in God.
- Herber Doust Curtis
There is a God! the sky his presence shares,
His hand upheaves the billows in their mirth,
Destroys the mighty, yet the humble spares
And with contentment crowns the thought of worth.
- Charlotte Cushman, There is a God
As long as we work on God's line, He will aid us. When we attempt to work on our own lines, He rebukes us with failure.
- Theodore Ledyard Cuyler
As Phidias contrived his mechanism so that his memory could never be obliterated without the destruction of his work, so the great name of God is interwoven in the texture of all that He has made. His goodness blooms in every flower; His glory beams in every star. There is a God! The sun speaks it in his splendor by day, and the moon in her radiance by night. There is a God! Inanimate nature, from the pebble upon the beach, to the orb that shines in the vaulted sky, declares it; and, animate existence, from the tiniest insect, to Gabriel before the throne. The earth is full of Him. His majesty commands the cherubim; His temple is all space; His arm is around all worlds.
- Joseph Dare
Born of God, attach thyself to Him, as a plant to is root, that ye may not be withered.
Let us always remember that God has never promised to supply our wishes, but only our wants, and these only as they arise from day to day.
- Alexander Dickson
My God, my Father, and my Friend,
Do not forsake me in the end.
- Wentworth Dillon, 4th Earl of Roscommon,
Translation of Dies Iroe
Perchance he for whom this bell tolls may be so ill, as that he knows not it tolls for him; and perchance I may think myself so much better than I am, as that they who are about me, and see my state, may have caused it to toll for me, and I know not that. The church is Catholic, universal, so are all her actions; all that she does belongs to all. When she baptizes a child, that action concerns me; for that child is thereby connected to that body which is my head too, and ingrafted into that body whereof I am a member. And when she buries a man, that action concerns me: all mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated; God employs several translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice; but Godís hand is in every translation, and his hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again for that library where every book shall lie open to one another.
- Dr. John Donne,
Devotions upon Emergent Occasions
'Twas much, that man was made like God before,
But, that God should be made like man, much more.
- Dr. John Donne, Holy Sonnets (no. XV)
God never made His work for man to mend.
- John Dryden
By tracing Heaven his footsteps may be found:
Behold! how awfully he walks the round!
God is abroad, and wondrous in his ways
The rise of empires, and their fall surveys.
- John Dryden, Britannia Rediviva (l. 75)
God's commandments are the iron door into Himself. To keep them is to have it opened and His great heart of love revealed.
- Samuel Augustus Willoughy Duffield
God, so to speak, is myriad-minded. We cannot look, therefore, to put ourselves in accord with His plans any more than one man can run a line for a railroad which it requires a small army to survey.
- Samuel Augustus Willoughy Duffield
What must be the knowledge of Him, from whom all created minds have derived both their power of knowledge, and the innumerable objects of their knowledge! What must be the wisdom of Him, from whom all things derive their wisdom!
- Timothy Dwight
Too wise to err, too good to be unkind,--
Are all the movements of the Eternal Mind.
- Rev. John East, Songs of My Pilgrimage
God is divine Principle, supreme incorporeal Being, Mind, Spirit, Soul, Life, Truth, Love.
- Mrs. Mary Baker Glover Eddy,
Science and Health (ch. XIV, p. 465),
