But Thou art God, and knowest all;
Dear Lord ! Thou knowest me ; And yet Thy knowledge hinders not
Thy love's sweet liberty.
Ah, how Thy grace hath wooed my soul
With persevering wiles! Now give me tears to weep ; for tears
Are deeper joy than smiles.
Each proof renewed of Thy great love Humbles me more and more,
And brings to light forgotten sins, And lays them at my door.
The more I love Thee, Lord! the more
I hate my own cold heart; The more Thou woundest me with love,
The more I feel the smart.
What shall I do, then, dearest Lord!
Say, shall I fly from Thee, And hide my poor unloving self
Where Thou canst never see ?
Or shall I pray that Thy dear love
To me might not be given ? Ah no ! love must be pain on earth,
If it be bliss in Heaven.
