HATRED OF SIN




Holy Lord God! I love Thy truth,
Nor dare Thy least
commandment slight;
Yet pierced by sin, the serpentís tooth,
I mourn the anguish of the bite.


But though the poison lurks within,
Hope bids me still with patience wait;
Till death shall set me free from sin,
Free from the only thing I hate.


Had I a throne above the rest,
Where angels and archangels dwell;
One sin, unslain, within my breast,
Would make that Heavín
as dark as hell.


The prisoner, sent
to breathe fresh air,
And blessed with liberty again,
Would mourn, were he
condemned to wear
One link of all his former chain.


But O! no foe invades the bliss,
When glory crowns
the Christianís head;
One view of Jesus as He is,
Will strike all sin forever dead.
