Wilt Thou Forgive?

I found this hymn years ago and loved the lyrics– who hasn’t had these fears and storms within?  I put it to new chords and finally made a recording– poor, I know, but I’m happy it’s somewhere other than my head. If you’d like to give me feedback or help me improve it, let me know! Grace and Peace!

 

Wilt thou forgive that sin where I begun

Which is my sin, though it were done before

Wilt thou forgive those sins through which I run

And do run still, though still I do deplore?

 

When thou hast done

Thou hast not done

When thou hast done

Thou hast not done For I have more

 

Wilt thou forgive that sin by which I won

Others to sin and made my sin their door

Wilt thou forgive that sin which I did shun

A year or two but wallowed in a score

 

When thou hast done

Thou hast not done

When thou hast done

Thou hast not done

When thou hast done

Thou hast not done

For I have more

 

I have a sin of fear that when I’ve spun

My last thread I shall perish on the shore

Swear by thyself that at my death thy Son

Shall shine as he shines now and heretofore

 

And having done that

And having done that

Thou hast done, Thou hast done

And having done that

Thou hast done

And having done that

Thou hast done

I fear no more
