Prayers Ancient and Modern 01/10

I what I can find only in Thee, O Lord, peace and rest and joy and bliss, which abide only in Thine abiding joy. Lift up my soul above the weary round of harassing thoughts to Thy eternal Presence. Lift up my soul to the pure, bright, serene, radiant atmosphere of Thy Presence, that there I may breathe freely, there repose in Thy love, there be at rest from myself, and from all things that weary me ; and thence return, arrayed with Thy peace, to do and bear what shall please Thee— Amen.

Edward Boiverie Pusey (1800-1882)
