A prayer about my sin and my savior — 

 

When my heart is unsavoury with sin, sorrow, darkness, hell,

only thy free grace can help me act

with deep abasement under a sense of unworthiness.

 

Let me lament for forgetting daily to come to thee.

 

Grant that I may be salted with suffering,

with every exactment tempered to my soul,

every rod excellently fitted to my back,

to chastise, humble, break me.

 

Let me not overlook the hand that holds the rod,

as thou didst not let me forget the rod that fell

on Christ,

and drew me to him.
