Sweet and Sour Sin
Sweet and sour taste of sin
Slowly churn the thoughts within.
As the battle with my conscience
Has resistance wearing thin.
While desire’s pull is strong
I know what’s right and what’s wrong.
Know I should be so much better
When temptation comes along.
But alas, I was so feeble
Against this tempting evil,
Until I heard a church bell
Ringing loudly in the vale.
I asked the Lord to guide me
When standing right beside me
Was the presence of our Savior,
Cleansing evil thoughts inside me.
Praise the Lord!
