Escape for a Moment

Come now, little man, turn aside
for a little while from your daily employment,
escape for a moment
from the tumult of your thoughts.

Put aside your weighty cares,
let your burdensome distractions wait,
free yourself awhile for God,
and rest awhile in Him.

Enter the inner chamber of your soul,
shut out everything except God
and that which can help you in seeking Him,
and when you have shut the door, seek Him.

Now, my whole heart, say to God,
“I seek your face,
Lord it is your face I seek.”

-Anselm
