... At length, groaning with exhaustion, I fell asleep, and heard a compassionate voice saying,
'O fool, and slow to believe and serve thy God, the God of every man! ... From thy birth He hath ever held thee in special charge ...
Of those barriers of the Ocean Sea, which were closed with such mighty chains, He hath given thee the keys ...
Turn thou to Him and acknowledge thy faults; His mercy is infinite; thine old age shall not hinder thee from performing mighty deeds ... Whatever He promises He fulfills with interest; that is His way."
