Excerpt from Heaven or an Earnest and Scriptural Inquiry Into the Abode of the Sainted Dead
The soul, uneasy and confined from home) Rests and expatiates in a life to come.
Lift up your heads, ye heavenly pilgrims, and be hold your home! Your earnest, longing eyes, turned upward, declare plainly that you seek a country. Blessed are they that are home-sick, for they Shall get home. AS yet there is wo unto you, because you sojourn in Mesech, and are compelled to tarry in the tents of Kedar; but if you will, I Shall Speak comfortably to you, in the language Of Canaan, by the way. Rest thee, then, upon thy staff, for even in this weary land whence ye go out, it is granted unto way-faring men to turn aside for a night, to re fresh themselves with rest under the shadow of a rock. Strong in thy heart, it is true, are the drawings of thy Father, and Ofathy home; yet, in thy earnestness to gather the full harvest of heavenly fire-side joys, thou must not forget to enjoy the blessed first-fruits, which are granted thee as an earnest by the way.
