Happy are they who penetrate into internal things, and endeavor to prepare themselves more and more, by daily exercises, for the attaining to heavenly secrets. Mind these things, O my soul, and shut the doors of thy senses, that thou mayest hear what the Lord thy God speaks within thee.
-Bk. III, ch. i.
A child of light am I, who oft
Neglect to trade aright,
And let my shining talent lie
Forgotten, out of sight.
The Gospel is a mine of gold
Love only can explore:
Teach me to find its hidden wealth,
The secrets of its lore!
