 Next Poem          

Oppressed with sin and woe,
A burdened heart I bear,
Opposed by many a mighty foe:
But I will not despair.
With this polluted heart
I dare to come to Thee,
Holy and mighty as Thou art;
For Thou wilt pardon me.

I feel that I am weak,
And prone to every sin:
But Thou who giv'st to those who seek,
Wilt give me strength within.

Far as this earth may be
From yonder starry skies;
Remoter still am I from Thee:
Yet Thou wilt not despise.

I need not fear my foes,
I need not yield to care,
I need not sink beneath my woes:
For Thou wilt answer prayer.

In my Redeemer's name,
I give myself to Thee;
And all unworthy as I am
My God will cherish me.

O make me wholly Thine!
Thy love to me impart,
And let Thy holy spirit shine
For ever on my heart!

    Just red this from Anne Bronte, and wow, it really spoke to me. Theres such a powerfull message in here about faith and the struggle with our own sins, but the ultimate hope for forgiveness. Love the raw emotions she has poured into it, its so moving. Her work just never seemes 2 disappoint me. Very uplifting and beautifully written, truly a comfort during difficult times.
