Warfare

My life is a mist,

Coming and ending quickly,

Leaving me no time.

 

Yet, I am selfish

Wanting to do things for me,

Forgetting God’s will.

 

Lead me back, O God,

To the straight path You have set

For this crooked one.

 

Help me finish, Lord,

This great work that You gave me

To the very end.

 

Although fear chases

After this cowardly girl,

You chase it away.

 

So, I pray, O Lord

That I will remember You

In every action.

 

And if I’m astray,

Lead me back to You, Father

Back to the straight path.

 

I am a sinner

Whose flesh loses constant ways

That the world baited.

 

Help me fight, O God,

In this spiritual warfare

Of this world and You.
