Let It Die

I am raging in my skin;
burning, thus, to bitterness.
Wrought of work of old sin,
of those things that wreak of flesh.

I've been flayed by my desire,
things I've wanted for my heart.
A man burned, clutching fire;
it has left me torn apart.

Please let this passion die;
I'm driven toward a broken dream.
Forward, to Hope, I must fly
far beyond what is so mean.

Let it die the death of lusts,
for that is all its worth.
Of broken dreams, broken trusts,
I wish to end this hopeless search.

All my heart, with its eyes,
I aim them toward You now.
Hear my calls, with it sighs
I choose to submit and bow.

I take Your word to comfort me,
mixing it with the gift of faith.
Obeying this truth I will be free,
unhindered to run Your race.
