There is more glory by John Owen

There is more glory under the eye of God, in the sighs, groans, and mournings of poor souls filled with the love of Christ, after the enjoyment of him according to his promises— in their fervent prayers for his manifestation of himself unto them— in the refreshments and unspeakable joys which they have in his gracious visits and embraces of his love–than in the thrones and diadems of all the monarchs on earth.

– John Owen, The Works of John Owen, vol. 1 (ed. W.H. Goold; Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1850-53/2013), 159.
