Benefits of Affliction — Self-Abasement
For after we turned away from you we repented. After we came to our senses we beat our breasts in sorrow. We are ashamed and humiliated because of the disgraceful things we did previously.’
[Jer 31:19 NET]
Dumb at thy feet I lie,
For thou hast brought me low;
Remove thy judgements, lest I die;
I faint beneath thy blow.
