CHRISTIAN PARADOX




If men should wondering say of me,
The change how strange, how great!
Not less surprised am I to see
What contradictions meet.


I am a stranger, yet at home,
A slave and yet am free;
A captive bound, and still I roam
With sweetest liberty.


Although my debts are all discharged,
O am a debtor still;
And when my heart is most enlarged,
Its hardness most I feel.


My great and complicated crimes
Are punished, yet forgiven;
Iím justly doomed to endless flames,
And yet prepared for heaven.
