IMPLORING FORGIVENESS




íTis sin, that worst of ills,
Disorders all my frame;
Conscience it arms with deadly stings,
And fills my face with shame.


In vain, alas, I strive,
My wretchedness to hide
With filthy rags of righteousness,
Which my own hands provide.


The holy law condemns
To everlasting pain;
Vain is the hope I draw from thence
And all the comfort vain.


Oh hear thy servant, Lord,
And thy compassion show;
Pardon my aggravated sins,
Forgive my duties too.


Abashed and self-abhorred,
I at thy footstool lie
And should thy mercy be withheld
Here Iím resolved to die.
