Now are they come unto the place of quiet,
Into the heart of silence, where God is,
Far, far away from all the mortal riot
Safe in the home of lovely sanctities.
And there they rest, who fought with no surrender,
Lapt round with peace like water cool and bright
Till God shall armour them again in splendour,
To battle with the spirits of the night!
My soul, forestall awhile the ultimate fiat,
A moment doff the body's hindrance,
And come thou too unto the place of quiet,
Into the heart of silence, where God is.
A Little Book of Quiet.
