Think Gently Of The Erring One O Let Us


Think gently of the erring one;
And let us not forget,
However darkly stained by sin,
He is our brother yet.

Heir of the same inheritance,
Child of the selfsame God,
He hath but stumbled in the path
We have in weakness trod.

Forget not, thou hast often sinned,
And sinful yet may’st be;
Deal gently with the erring heart,
As God has dealt with thee.

Amen.
