Forget (Russell)

(Micah 7:19, Zechariah 13:1-2)

At east He stands, throws sins beyond the west;

Iniquity’s fierce conqueror is He.
Around its neck He ties a millstone fast
And shoves it in the sea.

The waves of His forgetful sea have yet
To splash and soak my guilty memory;
Forgiving, gracious tides gladly forget
What I cannot unsee.

A fountain He will open on that Day
To splash and soak my guilty memory;
Then, not even the evil names will stay
And holy I will be.
