SIR JOHN BOWRING
English statesman
(1792 - 1872)

Chance and change are busy ever;
  Man decays, and ages move;
    But His mercy waneth never;
      God is wisdom, God is love.
      - [God]

In the cross of Christ I glory,
  Towering o'er the wrecks of time;
    All the light of sacred story
      Gathers round its head sublime.
      - [Cross]

Now the noon,
  Wearied with sultry toil, declines and falls,
    Into the mellow eve:--the west puts on
      Her gorgeous beauties--palaces and halls,
        And towers, all carv'd of the unstable cloud,
          Welcome the calmly waning monarch--he
            Sinks gently midst that glorious canopy
              Down on his couch of rest--even like a proud
                King of the Earth--the ocean.
      - [Sunset]

Sleep is no servant of the will; it has caprices of its own; when courted most, it lingers still; when most pursued, 'tis swiftly gone.
      - [Sleep]

The talents lost--the moments run
  To waste--the sins of act, of thought,
    Ten thousand deeds of folly done,
      And countless virtues cherish'd not.
      - [Talent]

There is a land where everlasting suns
  Shed everlasting brightness; where the soul
    Drinks from the living streams of love that roll
      By God's high throne! myriads of glorious ones
        Bring their accepted offering. Oh! how blest
          To look from this dark prison to that shrine,
            To inhale one breath of Paradise divine,
              And enter into that eternal rest
                Which waits the sops of God.
      - [Heaven]
