My God, my God, and can it be

My God! my God! and can it be
that I should sin so lightly now,
and think no more of evil thoughts
than of the wind that waves the bough?

I walk the earth with lightsome step,
smile at the sunshine, breathe the air,
do my own will, nor ever heed
Gethsemane and thy long prayer.

Shall it be always thus, O Lord?
Wilt thou not work this hour in me
the grace thy passion merited,
hatred of self, and love of thee!

Ever when tempted, make me see,
beneath the olive's moon-pierced shade,
my God, alone, outstretched, and bruised,
and bleeding, on the earth he made;

and make me feel it was my sin,
as though no other sins there were,
that was to him who bears the world
a load that he could scarcely bear.
