A Hymn to God the Father

Wilt thou forgive that sin where I begun,
Which was my sin, though it were done before?
Wilt 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 wallow’d 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, the English poet, satirist, lawyer and priest

STRONG AND CONSTANT

I WILL BE YAHWEH WHO WALKS WITH YOU
YOU WILL BE ALWAYS WITHIN MY HAND
TAKE YOUR HEART AND GIVE IT ALL TO ME

STRONG AND CONSTANT IS MY LOVE
STRONG AND CONSTANT IS MY LOVE

SHOULD YOU WANDER FAR AWAY FROM ME
I WILL SEARCH FOR YOU IN EV’RY LAND
SHOULD YOU CALL THEN YOU WILL TRULY KNOW

STRONG AND CONSTANT IS MY LOVE
STRONG AND CONSTANT IS MY LOVE

WHEN YOU KNOW SORROW WITHIN YOUR LIFE
I WILL COME, I WILL EMBRACE YOUR HEART
THROUGH YOUR PAIN YOU WILL DISCOVER ME

STRONG AND CONSTANT IS MY LOVE
STRONG AND CONSTANT IS MY LOVE
