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.

    An absolutely stunning poem! Confessing to all his mortal sins. And being forgiven. And then, to confess to his fear of death. Not only is he forgiven, but he sees the light of Jesus. And his fear is gone. In Soul's Journey - Parts I - V, I write about my near death encounter with Jesus. So poems like this totally resonate with me. (Report) Reply

    (A Hymn To God The Father - Poem by John Donne.)

    Wilt thou forgive that sin which I have won
    Others to sin, and made my sin their door?
    ...
    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.

    Gives me goose bumps. A prayer of penitence. Donne, conscious of his spiritual state, and his responsibility to God, seeks all forgiveness in preparation of his final moments of life- whenever that might have been. A prayer applicable to all. Well penned. (Report) Reply
