Nothing is worth the price of eternity,
Nothing too tempting, too strong.
It's simply too costly, the price that I pay,
The longings I feel are so wrong.
I know in my mind, but I feel in my heart,
I come for Your help on my knees.
So hold me, please hold me, and open Your arms,
And listen once more to my pleas.
The enemy knows just where to attack me,
He knows on my own I am weak,
And so, oh my Father, I come once again,
For Your strength I constantly seek.
Without You I'll fail and Satan prevail,
This battle must be overcome.
Eternity's calling, I fear I am falling
To lies and my feelings succumb.
For strength I am pleading and Your Word agreeing,
For Your sweet deliverance I pray.
Your promise I'm claiming, for heaven I'm aiming,
Don't let me Your mercy betray.
"The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations." II Peter 2:9a (KJV)
