My conscience speaks

28 Apr 2022 | Christ-likeness | 0 comments

My conscience umpire; whom if they will hear,

Light after light well used they shall attain,

And to the end persisting safe arrive.

This my long sufferance, and my day of grace,

They who neglect and scorn shall never taste;

But be hardened, blind be blinded more,

That they may stumble on, and deeper fall…


John Milton (1608-74), Paradise Lost,

Notes from the Compiler
