William Cowper (Уильям Купер)


Repose In God


Blest! who, far from all mankind
This world's shadows left behind,
Hears from heaven a gentle strain
Whispering love, and loves again.

Blest! who, free from self–esteem,
Dives into the great Supreme.
All desire beside discards,
Joys inferior none regards.

Blest! who in thy bosom seeks
Rest that nothing earthly breaks,
Dead to self and worldly things,
Lost in thee, thou King of kings!

Ye that know my secret fire,
Softly speak and soon retire;
Favour my divine repose,
Spare the sleep a God bestows. 



William Cowper's other poems:
  1. Aspirations Of The Soul After God
  2. Lively Hope And Gracious Fear
  3. I Will Praise The Lord At All Times
  4. The Doves
  5. Pleading For And With Youth
