‘Father, I have sinned’;
Yet still I live, and fly repenting to thy oustretched
  thou wilt not cast me off, for Jesus brings me near,
  thou wilt not condemn me, for he died in
    my stead,
  thou wilt not mark my mountains of sin,
    for he levelled all,
  and his beauty covers my deformities.
O my God, I bid farewell to sin by clinging
    to his cross,
  hiding in his wounds, and sheltering in his side.


This is an extract from Valley of Vision. The Valley of Vision is a collection of Puritan prayers, poems and devotionals. It is a modern spiritual classic. It was authored by Arthur Bennett and published by The Banner of Truth Trust. After God’s Word, next to The Pilgrim’s Progress and Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, The Valley of Vision has been a very influential book in the life of Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni.
