Thy justice me most fitly payes

May 13, 2016



    I CANNOT skill of these thy ways:
  Lord, thou didst make me, yet thou woundest me:
  Lord, thou dost wound me, yet thou dost relieve me:
  Lord, thou relievest, yet I die by thee:
  Lord, thou dost kill me, yet thou dost reprieve me.
    But when I mark my life and praise,
    Thy justice me most fitly payes:
  For, I do praise thee, yet I praise thee not:
  My prayers mean thee, yet my prayers stray:
  I would do well, yet sinne the hand hath got:
  My soul doth love thee, yet it loves delay.
    I cannot skill of these my ways.
