Sunday Quotes: A Hymn To Christ

“Seal then this my bill of divorce to all

on whom those fainter beams of love did fall’

marry those loves which in youth scattered be

on fame, wit, hopes (false mistresses) to thee.

Churches are best for prayer that have least light:

To see God only, I go out of sight,

and to ‘scape stormy days, I choose an everlasting night.”

 

-John Donne; A Hymn to Christ
