Trinitie Sunday
From THE TEMPLE. Sacred Poems and Private Ejaculations
by George Herbert 
(First printed in 1633, the year of Herbert's death.)

LORD, who hast form'd me out of mud 
      And hast redeem'd me through thy bloud, 
      And sanctifi'd me to do good; 

Purge all my sinnes done heretofore: 
      For I confesse my heavie score, 
      And I will strive to sinne no more. 

Enrich my heart, mouth, hands in me, 
      With faith, with hope, with charitie; 
      That I may runne, rise, rest with thee.
