Daily Strength - Self-Inquiries



"Let not soft slumber close your eyes, 
Before you've collected thrice
The train of action through the day! 
Where have my feet chose out their way? 
What have I learnt, where'er I've been, 
From all I've heard, from all I've seen? 
What have I more that's worth the knowing? 
What have I done that's worth the doing? 
What have I sought that I should shun? 
What duty have I left undone, Or into what new follies run? 
These self-inquiries are the road 
That lead to virtue and to God. " 
 
Isaac Watts
