God giveth His beloved sleep and in that peaceful sleep realities, not dreams, come round their quiet rest and fill their conscious spirits and happy hearts with blessedness and fellowship. IN His own time He will make the eternal morning dawn and the hand that kept them in their slumbers shall touch them into waking, and shall clothe them when they arise according to the body of His own glory; and they, looking into His face, and flashing back its love, its light, its beauty, shall each break forth into singing as the rising light of that unsettling day touches their transfigured and immortal heads, in the triumphant thanksgiving. "I am satisfied, for I awake in thy likeness."
