Whate’er my God ordains is right: Holy His will abideth;
I will be still whate’er He doth, And follow where He guideth:
He is my God; Though dark my road,
He holds me that I shall not fall;
Wherefore to Him I leave it all.
— Samuel Rodigast
As water is deepest where it is the stillest, so where God is most silent in threatening and patient in sparing, there He is most inflamed with anger and purpose of revenge; and, therefore, the few the judgements be that are poured forth upon the wicked in this life, the more are reserved in store for them in the life to come.
— Daniel Cawdry
