    Afflictions Though They Seem severe

    by John Newton


    Afflictions, though they seem severe;
    In mercy oft are sent;
    They stopped the prodigal`s career,
    And forced him to repent.

    Although he no relentings felt
    Till he had spent his store;
    His stubborn heart began to melt
    When famine pinched him sore.

    "What have I gained by sin, he said,
    But hunger, shame, and fear;
    My father`s house abounds with bread,
    While I am starving here.

    I`ll go, and tell him all I`ve done,
    And fall before his face
    Unworthy to be called his son,
    I`ll seek a servant`s place."


    His father saw him coming back,
    He saw, and ran, and smiled;
    And threw his arms around the neck
    Of his rebellious child.

    "Father, I`ve sinned-but O forgive!"
    I`ve heard enough, he said,
    Rejoice my house, my son`s alive,
    For whom I mourned as dead.

    Now let the fatted calf be slain,
    And spread the news around;
    My son was dead, but lives again,
    Was lost, but now is found.

    `Tis thus the Lord His love reveals,
    To call poor sinners home;
    More than a father`s love He feels,
    And welcomes all that come.


    Man, I listened to this tonight, and I had goosebumps!!

    Museums in Kentucky are West Virginia's latest invention.
