50. O Lord God, grant us thy peace - for thou hast given us all things. Grant us the peace of quietness, the peace of the Sabbath, the peace without an evening. All this most beautiful array of things, all so very good, will pass away when all their courses are finished - for in them there is both morning and evening.
51. But the seventh day is without an evening, and it has no setting, for thou hast sanctified it with an everlasting duration. After all thy works of creation, which were very good, thou didst rest on the seventh day, although thou hadst created them all in unbroken rest - and this so that the voice of thy Book might speak to us with the prior assurance that after our works - and they also are very good because thou hast given them to us - we may find our rest in thee in the Sabbath of life eternal.653
653 Cf. this requiescamus in te with the requiescat in te in Bk. I, Ch. I.
