And restless our hearts until in Thee they find their ease

 From: The Confessions

“Late have I loved Thee, O Lord; and behold,
Thou wast within and I without, and there I sought Thee.augustine1.jpgaugustine1.jpg
Thou was with me when I was not with Thee.
Thou didst call, and cry, and burst my deafness.
Thou didst gleam, and glow, and dispell my blindness.
Thou didst touch me, and I burned for Thy peace.
For Thyself Thou hast made us,
And restless our hearts until in Thee they find their ease.
Late have I loved Thee, Thou Beauty ever old and ever new.
Thou hast burst my bonds asunder;

Unto Thee will I offer up an offering of praise.”

Aurelius Augustinus
