11.10.11.10. Dactylic


1
HOW bright, there above, is the mercy of God!
And void of all guilt, and clear of all sin,
Are my conscience and heart, through my Saviour's blood:
Not a cloud above - not a spot within.
2
Christ died! then I'm clean : not a spot within.
God's mercy and love! not a cloud above.
'Tis the Spirit, through faith, thus triumphs o'er sin:
Not a cloud above - not a spot within.

G.V. Wigram (1805-1879)
