“A Hymn to God the Father”

Therefore, the purpose of the vague and general use of language when describing his sins, as seen in lines one and two: "WILT Thou forgive that sin where I begun, Which was my sin, though it were done beforeaE, could have been to give insight to other people as to what one might think about on the verge of death, especially if one shared the same belief in Christianity. The poem itself is a general view of a life through the description of its sin, beginning with the original sin of being human, continuing with the sins he committed throughout his life and led others to do too, and ending with his fear that when he dies he will not be brought into heaven. In this poem, the speaker (possibly a general representation of every person) pleads for absolution from guilt and the hope that there is life for him beyond this.
