Your Embrace

Fallen, oh so fallen,
So easily I fail.
I strive so hard for righteousness,
But flesh seems to prevail.

The good I want to do,
It seems I seek in vain;
The sin I long to conquer
I surrender to again.

Walking on the righteous path,
At times the stuff of dreams.
The strength I think I have within
Is weaker than it seems.

In these failing moments,
Lord, I thank You for your grace;
When I struggle to be faithful,
I’m still held in Your embrace.
