Behold where I am scarred
Blotches of my skin marred
Rough and calloused from abuse
Patches of skin that was torn loose
Look and see they are healed
Once where my flesh was peeled
Now monuments of pain endured
The wounds that are now cured
On my knees is where they lie
Permanently marking me until I die
Reminders of my trials endured
Times when my tears have poured
Fallen time and time again
Battling my flesh and desire of sin
Down on my knees once more
To My Father, forgiveness I implore
Scarred and rough are these knees
Fallen to where God hears my pleas
These are not scars of shame
But of trials that He overcame
No matter how long I stand
On my knees I will continue to land
For it is on these scarred knees
Where My Lord continually frees
A constant reminder of a war waged
In my heart where battles raged
On my knees is where they are
These are my battle scars
