The Enjoyment of God

The enjoyment of God
is the only happiness
with which our souls can be satisfied.
To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God,
is infinitely better
than the most pleasant accommodations here.
[These] are but shadows;
but God is the substance.
These are but scattered beams;
but God is the sun.
These are but streams;
but God is the ocean.
Edwards
