The Abyss and the Debt

Robert Murray M’Cheyne wrote in one of his letters --
None but God knows what an abyss of corruption is in my heart.
A poem he wrote --
When I stand before the throne,
Dressed in beauty not my own,
When I see thee as thou art,
Love thee with unsinning heart,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know -
Not till then - how much I owe.
