A Hymn To God The Father - Poem 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 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.

    The last line is wrong. It states I have no more I fear no more also makes since. But there are critics that say he could be talking about his wife that died. Her last name as More before he married her. This poem was written 6 years after her death. The last line can very easily have two meanings. I have no more sin or lost love? (Report) Reply
