1 And wilt Thou pardon, Lord,
A sinner such as I,
Although Thy book his crimes record,
Of such a crimson dye?

2 So deep are they engraved,
So terrible their fear.
The righteous scarcely can be saved,
And where shall I appear?

3 O Thou Physician blest,
Make clean my guilty soul
And me, by many a sin opprest,
Restore and keep me whole!

4 I know not how to praise
Thy mercy and Thy love;
But deign my soul from earth to raise
And learn from Thee above.

Amen.

Both father and mother are said to have been "very pronounced Evangelicals." The father died in 1823, and the boy's early training was entirely under the direction of his mother, his deep attachment for whom is shown by the fact that, not long before his death, he wrote of her as "a mother to whom I owe more than I can express." He was educated at Sherborne Grammar School, and was afterwards… Go to person page >
