Yet I Sin

August 20, 2008 — 6 Comments

I read this today during my devotions.

Give me the fullness of a godly grief
that trembles and fears,
yet ever trusts and loves,
which is ever powerful, and ever confident;
Grant that through the tears of repentance
I may see more clearly the brightness
and glories of the saving cross.

Amen.

From The Valley of Vision, page 125.
