A hymn to God the Father

I found this here: http://daveys2france.blogspot.com/2007/05/hymn-to-god-father.html

A hymn to God the Father
Wilt Thou forgive that sin where I begun, Which was my sin, though it were done before?vvWilt Thou forgive that sin, through which I run, And do run still, though still I do deplore? When Thou hast done, Thou hast not done, For I have more.

Wilt Thou forgive that sin which I have won Others to sin, and made my sin their door? Wilt Thou forgive that sin which I did shun A year or two, but wallowed in a score? When Thou hast done, Thou hast not done, For I have more.

I have a sin of fear, that when I have spun My last thread, I shall perish on the shore ;But swear by Thyself, that at my death Thy Son Shall shine as he shines now, and heretofore ; And having done that, Thou hast done ; I fear no more.

by John Donne.
