Selections of Religious Poetry (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Selections of Religious Poetry He must dwell deep indeed whose heart Can thus fulfil true wisdom's part. Not in our own spontaneous will Can we the world shut out, Say to our passions, peace be still, Or check each rising doubt; Alone, by prayer 'tis slowly won, In the world's throng too rarely done. How needful is it then for man From things of time to steal, Those of Eternity to scan, Their magnitude to feel? The first are transitory, vain, The last forever will remain. Retirement must adjust the beam, And prayer must poise the scales. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
