(About Complaints, Love)

Lord, it is my chief complaint, That my love is weak and faint Yet I love thee and adore, Oh for grace to love thee more.


More Quotes from William Cowper:


Doing good, disinterested good, is not our trade.
William Cowper

When one that holds communion with the skies Has fill'd his urn where these pure waters rise, And once more mingles with us meaner things, 'T is e'en as if an angel shook his wings.
William Cowper

Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
William Cowper

From the first breath of life divine
Down to the last expiring hour,
The gracious work shall all be mine,
Begun and ended in my power.
William Cowper

Beware of desperate steps the darkest day, Lived till tomorrow, will have passed away.
William Cowper

A patriot's blood,Well spent in such a strife, may earn indeed,And for a time ensure to his loved land,The sweets of liberty and equal lawsBut martyrs struggle for a brighter prize,And win it with more pain. Their blood is shedIn confirmation of the noblest claim --Our claim to feed upon immortal truth,To walk with God, to be divinely free,To soar, and to anticipate the skies.Yet few remember them.
William Cowper
