A Hymn to God the Father – John Donne
Describing the tragic results of Adam’s rebellion and its effects on us, John Donne penned “A Hymne to God the Father”:
Wilt thou forgive that sinne wehre I begunne,
Which was my sin, though it were done before?
Wilt thou forgive that sinne; through which I runne,
And do run still: though still I do deplore?
When thou hast done, thou has not done,
For I have more.
