My Savior

Under my own strength,
I am helpless to resist
In temptation's face.

The world responds with,
"Be an individual,
You can overcome."

I'm insufficient
To meet This Perfect Standard.
I can't withstand all.

Sin, always my choice.
God offers His perfect strength,
- But for me to choose.

This journey of life
Teaches me to trust in God,
Not to trust my strength.

To learn these lessons:
Teach me to turn to You first,
Not rely on self.

Let me not forget,
That while my will (strength) might grow.
I can rest on You.
