A Hymn To God The Father Analysis

Wilt thou forgive that sin where I begun,

Which was my sin, though it were done before?

Wilt thou forgive that sin, through which I run,

And do run still, though still I do deplore?

When thou hast done, thou hast not done,

For I have more.

Wilt thou forgive that sin which I have won

Others to sin, and made my sin their door?

Wilt thou forgive that sin which I did shun

A year or two, but wallow'd in, a score?

When thou hast done, thou hast not done,

For I have more.

I have a sin of fear, that when I have spun

My last thread, I shall perish on the shore;

But swear by thyself, that at my death thy Son

Shall shine as he shines now, and heretofore;

And, having done that, thou hast done;

I fear no more.

i believe that john Donne in this poem is adressing God and seeking forgiveness for his sins,however,he discusses the act of sinning itself as something which was done before in reference to the first of adam and eve and he ask forgiveness eventhough he did not commit i,which epmhasis that sinning is a human nature which cannot be avioded though when we ask for forgiveness we still sin which is fact;the poem is very complicated to understand and i believe evereyone can have his or her own interpretation for the poem because its very rich of meaning.

In this poem Donne seems to be struggling with being forgiven and not having to worry about his sins any longer. In line 4 he seems to feel as if any new sins or future sins “And I run still [meaning continually]” he commits will mot be forgiven. Donne almost sounds worried because when God is done forgiving those sins he says “For, I have more.” The poem is actually quite ironic considering Donne says in line 13 “I have a sin of fear” but this entire poem is about his fear of his sins not being forgiven. In the end Donne settles and goes with his faith realizing that God has everything under control, “Thou hast done, I fear no more.”

I believe that John Donne is speaking about how we all go through sin and how one person should not be punished for sinning. It is a very complex poem, and one of the few that does not include any sexual language. Very well written for understanding.
