“On His Blindness”  / John Milton

 When I consider how my light is spent                                                                                                Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,                                                                            And that one talent which is death to hide                                                                            Lodged with me useless, though my soul more bent                                                                  To serve therewith my Maker, and present                                                                                    My true account, lest He returning chide,                                                                              “Doth God exact day-labor, light denied?”                                                                                        I fondly ask. But Patience, to prevent                                                                                          That murmur, soon replies, “God doth not need                                                                      Either man’s work or his own gifts. Who best                                                                          Bear His mild yoke, they serve Him best. His state                                                                      Is kingly, thousands at His bidding speed,                                                                                        And post o’er land and ocean without rest;                                                                              They also serve who only stand and wait.”
