By Night when Others Soundly Slept

Written by: Anne Bradstreet | Biography
 | Quotes (9) |
 .
By night when others soundly slept And hath at once both ease and Rest, My waking eyes were open kept And so to lie I found it best.
.
I sought him whom my Soul did Love, With tears I sought him earnestly.
He bow'd his ear down from Above.
In vain I did not seek or cry.
.
My hungry Soul he fill'd with Good; He in his Bottle put my tears, My smarting wounds washt in his blood, And banisht thence my Doubts and fears.
.
What to my Saviour shall I give Who freely hath done this for me? I'll serve him here whilst I shall live And Loue him to Eternity
