My Lord, If I Do Forget That Your Law


My Lord, if I do forget that Your law
do express Your character and love
let me then still experience Your grace
and give me the fixed faith of a child
although I am blinded by the darkness of my own sin.

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
