Sin - 23

Sin slowly crawls into any crack or crevice
You don't even know it's there
Before you know it you are at its service
Overwhelmed by a weight you can't bear.

When I am aware of Jesus all the time
Sin doesn't seem so strong
But the moment He is out of my mind
I immediately fall into wrong

It is ready to pierce my thoughts
It doesn't leave me alone
It is a fight I already fought
And left me raw to the bone

Without Him I bow down to my sin
I become a slave to it once more
It reminds me of where I've been
And burns my wounds that are sore

I do what I don't want to
I don't do what I should
My sins were but only few
Now I do things I thought I never would.
