ADMIRING THE DIVINE FORBEARANCE




Have. I transgressed against the Lord,
And do I yet rebel !
Why has he not unsheathed his sword,
And sent me down to hell ?


Sometimes his arm is lifted high,
Yet he delays the stroke;
My daily wants his hands supply,
While daily sins provoke.


His terrors stand in thick array,
But grace averts the storm ;
At his command the thunders stay,
Nor crush a rebel worm.


Let such forbearance mixed with love,
Sink deep within my heart ;
How sinful 'twas in me to rove,
And from my God depart.
