Moral Battle

Passion wars against my soul,
Claiming lust can make me whole;
Calling me to join the fun...
Let the devil's will be done.

Jesus calls me to be clean,
Glowing with a holy sheen,
Living now an exile here,
Purified by godly fear.

God of mercy and of grace,
Fit me to reflect your face.
Help me kill my lusts and pride.
Bind me to your holy side.

Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.
--1 Peter 2:11 ESV
