The Land of Nod

The Sleepy Congregation by William Hogarth

The Land of Nod

Faith is like sleeping.
What dreams we conceive there
We always believe there,
Where no doubt may creep in.

But be not mistaken
By heavenly seemings
And wishful sweet-dreamings;
It’s time to awaken.

As Genesis 4:16 informs us, Nod is located on the East of Eden.
