Benefits of Affliction -- Brings Sin to Remembrance

If they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction; then he showeth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded. Job 36:8, 9

My former hopes are fled,
My terror now begins;
I feel, alas! that I am dead
In trespasses and sins.
