Decently Writ, VIII
Let us not seek out of Thee what we can only find in Thee…
Let us not seek out of Thee what we can only find in Thee, O Lord! Peace and rest and joy and bliss, which abide only in Thine abiding joy. Lift up our souls above the weary round of harrassing thoughts to Thy Eternal Presence. Lift up our souls to the pure, bright, serene atmosphere of Thy Presence, that there we may breathe freely; there repose in Thy love; there be at rest from ourselves and from all things that weary us: and thence return, arrayed in Thy Peace, to do and to bear whatsoever shall best please Thee.
– E.B. Pusey
