if

I cannot bear to be like the father
     who did not soften the rigors of
     the far country;
if, in this sense, I refuse to allow the
     law of God (the way of trans-
     gressors is hard) to take effect,
because of the distress it causes me
     to see that law in operation,
then I know nothing of Calvary love.
