O name, that God's people of old did fear to utter ! O light, that God's prophet would have perished had he seen ! who are these that are now so familiar with it?
Side 152 - I hope none of you will refuse tastin' a bit of Katty's pudden ; I don't mane the dancin' one that tuck to its thravels to-day, but a good solid fellow that she med since.'
