by Winnifred Eze
On my own, I can never defeat thee For with my flesh, you team up against me. So, I humbly make my plea known to Mercy Who brings my flesh subject to the Spirit. And when thou arise to whisper thy lies, And pull me to the path where I lose the fight, Then Mercy will arise to rescue me And save me from thy terrible grip.
