O, if he would punish me for my sins, it would not wound my heart so deep to offend him;

But though I sin continually, he continually repeats his kindness to me.

At times I feel I could bear any suffering, but how can I dishonour this glorious God?

…Oh that I could give myself up to him, so as never more attempt to be my own! or have any will or affections that are not perfectly conformed to his will and his love!

But alas, I cannot live and not sin
