Church
 
When once thy foot enters the church, be bare—
God is more there than thou: for thou art there
Only by his permission. Then beware,
And make thyself all reverence and fear.
        Herbert.—The Temple Church Porch, Verse 68.

        Some to church repair,
Not for the doctrine, but the music there.
        Pope.—On Criticism, Line 342.
  2
I joy, dear mother, when I view
Thy perfect lineaments and hue
      Both sweet and bright:
Beauty in thee takes up her place,
And dates her letters from thy face,
      When she doth write.
        Herbert.—The British Church, Verse 1.
  3
Who builds a church to God, and not to fame,
Will never mark the marble with his name.
        Pope.—Moral Essays, Epi. III. To Bathurst, Line 285.
  4
For he loveth our nation, and hath built us a synagogue.
        St. Luke, Chap. vii. Ver. 5.
  5
  [The elders of the Jews to Jesus on behalf of the centurion’s servant, who was sick and ready to die.]  6
        Fond fools
Promise themselves a name from building churches.
        Randolph.—The Muses’ Looking-glass, Act III. Scene 1.
