The beautiful words, by the American Quaker and anti-slave-trade campaigner John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892), come from the latter part of his poem The Brewing of Soma—a Quaker commentary on pagan worship. Quoting the ‘still, small voice’ of 1 Kings 19: 11–13, he encourages a more measured approach towards contact with the Divine, characteristic of the Quakers, rather than the presumed excesses of ancient paganism.
