God’s hidden wisdom revealed

28 Apr 2022 | Jesus Christ, Humankind | 0 comments

All is best, though we oft doubt

What th’unsearchable dispose

Of Highest Wisdom brings about,

And ever best found in the close.

Oft he seems to hide his face,

But unexpectedly returns,

And to his faithful champion hath in place

Bore witness gloriously; whence Gaza mourns,

And all that band them to resist

His uncontrollable intent;

His servants he, with new acquist

Of true experience from this great event,

With peace and consolation hath dismissed,

And calm of mind, all passion spent.


John Milton (1608-74), Samson Agonistes.
