A Hymn to God the Father

A Hymn to God the Father - by John Donne
 
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 wallowed 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;
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.
