“HE IS BECOME MY SALVATION”

I.

This sin that doth so easily beset me—
“My God! if Thou one moment should’st
forget mel”—
|A.nd on my face before my Lord I lay me ;
Not meriting, save that as judge He slay
me;

II.



<poem>
Yet, feeling that He did not wholly spurn
me,
But still would urge me, purge me, burn
me, turn me,
Again I cried “Oh do not, Lord, forsake me !
In mercy take me, break me, and remake
me!

III.

How can I tell it all 1 the way He found me,
Forgave me, saved me, put His arms around
me;
He named me, claimed me, on His shoulders
bound me,
And carried, married, owned, enthroned and
crowned me!
