A Hymn to God the Father – John Donne

Friday, May 28, 2010

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.
