well, THAT’S a relief / sunday words from John Milton

… 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.

–from “When I Consider How My Light Is Spent” by John Milton

(Please excuse the Hims and hes & such — they didn’t think about gender inclusive language back in Milton’s day)
