My Lord, If I Do Forget That Your Law Poem by Gert Strydom


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.

    Although not a big fan of religious writes, I feel the need to note that this is such a beautifully worded prayer. Well done. (Report) Reply
