Christian Worship Compassion For The Sinning.

Think gently of the erring!
Lord, let us not forget,
However darkly stained by sin,
He is our brother yet.
Heir of the same inheritance!
Child of the self-same God!
He hath but stumbled in the path,
We have in weakness trod.

Speak gently to him, brother;
Thou yet mayst lead him back,
With holy words, and tones of love,
From misery’s thorny track.
Forget not thou hast often sinned,
And sinful yet must be:
Deal gently with the erring one,
As God hath dealt with thee.
