A CROWN OF SONNETS V
He will secure His purpose in His saints
And so I love them as the ones He chose
Before the worlds began, but now as those
Whom Jesus' blood has cleansed from all sin's taints.
Yet we remain where sin and sin's complaints
Affect us, and a sultry wind still blows;
I love the saints because my spirit knows
That they will bring it succour when it faints.
These are the sons of God and they are led
In worship by the Spirit. These are men
The Father gave to Jesus and who yen
To please Him, while among their plenteous dower
Of graces it can thankfully be said
They are united in the Spirit's power.
