And yet (which is our great reproach) we are often in a deep sleep in the midst of our greatest Dangers, and are hardly well awake when God has wrought out our Deliverance: we sleep when our Enemies are awake to contrive our destruction; and are but in a Dream, when watchful Providence has brought Salvation; so was the Church Ps. 126.1. When the Lord turned again the Captivity of Zion, then were we like them that dream; and that because we are slow to believe there should be so much malice in men to plot the ruin of them that are innocent; or so much mercy in God to save them that are so guilty: And therefore our God awakens our dull and drowsy souls, to consider how faithfully he that keeps Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.

For the reference, see Vincent Alsop on drowsiness in the midst of danger.
