Here you will find the Poem Lovest Thou Me? of poet John Newton
'Tis a point I long to know, Oft it causes anxious thought; Do I love the Lord, or no? Am I his, or am I not? If I love, why am I thus? Why this dull and lifeless frame? Hardly, sure, can they be worse, Who have never heard his name! Could my heart so hard remain, Prayer a task and burden prove; Every trifle give me pain, If I knew a Saviour's love? When I turn my eyes within, All is dark, and vain, and wild; Filled with unbelief and sin, Can I deem myself a child? If I pray, or hear, or read, Sin is mixed with all I do; You that love the Lord indeed, Tell me, Is it thus with you? Yet I mourn my stubborn will, Find my sin, a grief, and thrall; Should I grieve for what I feel, If I did not love at all? Could I joy his saints to meet, Choose the ways I once abhorred, Find, at times, the promise sweet, If I did not love the Lord? Lord decide the doubtful case! Thou who art thy people's sun; Shine upon thy work of grace, If it be indeed begun. Let me love thee more and more, If I love at all, I pray; If I have not loved before, Help me to begin today.
