Perseverance

Lord, my spirit is willing
But my flesh is so weak;
Every day, I cry out to you
Yet I donít hear you speak


Iíve been beaten so many times
You know what Iíve been through;
I canít overcome this giant
Yet this is what I must do


I fought this trial too many times
I used all the strength in me;
Yet I lost in every battle
And once again Iím not free


Lord, Iím tempted to call it quits
And lay here on the ground;
I'll let the giant win again
I've fought too many rounds


As I am now at my lowest
Tears flow down my cheek;
I cry out to God again
ďJesus, I am just too weak!Ē


Suddenly, I felt my body
Being lifted up by my Lord;
He helped me back on my feet
And said, ďLet's do this once moreĒ


I stood up to that giant
And fought as hard as I could;
He used old tactics to make me give up
Yet he only thought I would


I was determined to not back down
I had been here long enough;
Itís not the number of times I get hit
Itís the number of times I get up
