Most professors live as if there were no heaven,
or else as if heaven were not worth a seeking,
worth a desiring; as if heaven were a poor,
despised, contemptible thing.
But ah, Christians! be much in desiring and longing
to get into that glorious city, where streets, walls,
and gates are all goldyes, where pearl is but as
mire and dirt; and where are . . .
and that forever!
This word "forever" is a bottomless depth, a conception
without end; it is a word which sweetens all the glory
above, and that indeed makes heaven to be heaven!
