The things I want to do I cannot. The things I hate, I end up doing. Who can save us from ourselves? Only the grace of Christ!

The lust for sin
Roaring like a lion in my members
Impressed upon my body
My soul

Requiring constant attention by legions of angels
Tearing at the bars with which I bind it
Sin rips at the chains
Sometimes it seems invincible

Righteousness is so elusive
Worth any price of admission
To have access
To be allowed into His throne room

Grace covers me, my body, my soul
Blood has been spilled
For the grace, the chains, the angels
That keeps my sin imprisoned

Beautiful write, you are definitely not a luke warm Christian! Sad when people are afraid to stand for what they believe.
