Getting to the end of my first draft for a short book on sleep, and so it's time to write the conclusion. I've been doing that this morning and saving up this Victorian gem. A bit sentimental you might think, but actually it describes the reality of final sleep very well indeed. Margaret MacKay (the authoress) was lived from 1802-1887.
Asleep in Jesus! blessed sleep!
From which none ever wakes to weep;
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes.
