Religion, then, is Love's Celestial ForceThat penetrates thro' all to Its True Source;Loves all along, but with proportion'd Bent,As Creatures further the Divine Ascent,Not to the Skies or Stars, but to the partThat will be always uppermost, — the Heart,There is the Seat, as Holy Writings tell,Where the Most High Himself delights to dwell;Whither attracting the desirous WillTo its true Rest, He saves it from all Ill,Gives it to find in His Abyssal LoveAn Heav'n within, — in other Words, Above.
What question can be here? Your own true heartMust needs advise you of the only part:That may be claim'd again which was but lent,And should be yielded with no discontent,Nor surely can we find herein a wrong,That it was left us to enjoy it long.richard chenevix trench
