Poem by William Cowper
Repose in God
Blest! who, far from all mankind This world's shadows left behind, Hears from heaven a gentle strain Whispering love, and loves again. Blest! who, free from self–esteem, Dives into the great Supreme. All desire beside discards, Joys inferior none regards. Blest! who in thy bosom seeks Rest that nothing earthly breaks, Dead to self and worldly things, Lost in thee, thou King of kings! Ye that know my secret fire, Softly speak and soon retire; Favour my divine repose, Spare the sleep a God bestows.
