Ash Wednesday is upon us.
It is not for lack of thought that I am still undecided in what to give up...
But for lack of desire in giving it up.
Sorrowing I shall be in spirit,
Till released from flesh and sin,
Yet from what I do inherit,
Here Thy praises I'll begin;
Here I raise my Ebenezer,
Here by Thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
