by John Donne (1572 - 1631)

Bring us, o Lord God, at our last awakening
Language: English 
Available translation(s): ITA
Bring us, o Lord God, at our last awakening
into the house and gate of Heaven, 
to enter into that gate and dwell in that house, 
where there shall be no darkness nor dazzling, but one equal light; 
no noise nor silence, but one equal music;
no fears or hopes, but one equal possession;
no ends or beginnings, but one equal eternity, 
in the habitations of thy glory and dominion, 
world without end.
