ON HIS BLINDNESS BY MILTON

1. When I consider how my light is spent

3. And that one Talent which is death to hide,
4. Lodg'd with me useless, though my Soul more bent
5. To serve therewith my Maker, and present

7. Doth God exact day-labour, light deny'd,
8. I fondly ask: But patience to prevent
9. That murmur, soon replies, God doth not need
10. Either man's work or his own gifts, who best
11. Bear this milde yoak; they serve his best, his State
12. Is Kingly, Thousands at his bidding speed
13. And post o're Land and Ocean without rest:
14. They also serve who only stand and waite,
