THE SOUL'S TENDENCY TOWARDS ITS TRUE CENTRE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Stones towards the earth descend
Last Line: Peace to ev'ry christian heart!
Subject(s): Peace; Soul


STONES towards the earth descend;
Rivers to the ocean roll;
Ev'ry motion has some end:
What is thine, beloved soul?

Mine is, where my Saviour is;
There with Him I hope to dwell:
Jesu is the central bliss;
Love the force that doth impel.

Truly, thou hast answer'd right:
Now may Heav'n's attractive grace,
Tow'rds the Source of thy delight,
Speed along thy quick'ning pace!

Thank thee for thy gen'rous care!
Heav'n, that did the wish inspire,
Through thy instrumental pray'r,
Plumes the wings of my desire.

Now, methinks, aloft I fly:
Now, with angles bear a part:
Glory be to God on high!
Peace to ev'ry christian heart!
