If that a sinner's sighs
Language: English 
If that a sinner's sighs be Angel's food,
Or that repentant tears be Angel's wine,
Accept, O Lord, in this most pensive mood,
These hearty sighs and doleful plaints of mine,
That went with Peter forth most sinfully:
But not as Peter did, weep, weep bitterly.
