Sweet and Sour Sin

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!



Author Notes Sin can be so tempting. We are not strong enough alone.
