Even though I desire glory I am not a fool,
As I tell true not to forbear from His rule;
Anyone to think of me being above the law,
I tell you that their thoughts have a flaw;
In being exalted through the revelations,
As a thorn in my side causing tribulations;
To be tormented by the messenger of Satan,
Almost as if I was just feeling forsaken;
Call upon the Lord for Him to hear my plea,
The messenger of Satan to depart from me;
But knowing of the grace of God is present,
For strength in my weakness to be gallant.
The Lord is my strength when I am weak,
And why the reason His guidance I seek;
For God knows when I am most vulnerable,
Satan in knowing when I am conquerable;
God is always with me and being my guard,
Feeling safe knowing that He is my ward;
Never to be forsaken just having to call,
And He will be my mighty fortress wall.
