Of Flesh and Spirit War...

Ah, flesh and Spirit war
This battleground within
Bids us examine our thought
Of what is good or sin

Flesh wars against the Good
Its weakness covets filth
The Spirit bids us suffer long
To glean eternal wealth

Awesome Inheritance
How brief these wars of earth
Only what we have done for God
Will be of any worth

Ah, flesh and Spirit war
Tempter and Holy Word
Clash soundlessly within the mind
As deed reveals our lord

We know God is not mocked
What a man sows he reaps
Touch sacredly this gifted ground
Where eternity sleeps

Reading in Galatians 5&6. Warning and tender encouragement!
