The War Rages On

The war rages on within me
My spirit battles my flesh
There are times I seem lost in the sin of my past
And I cannot find any rest

I know that He died for my sins
That He hung on the cross for me
Yet I still face this foe that is deep down inside
He yearns for victory

I get down on my knees and cry mercy
To the one who can pull me out
Then I feel Him come and fill me with grace
I rise up and let out a shout

Thanks for the victory Jesus
This battles not mine but yours
I give you my mind and all of my thoughts
I know you hear all my prayers

Help me yield myself wholly to you, Lord
Help me give up all that is mine
Help me follow you closely every day
Help me walk in your vict’ry divine

Only in you can I overcome
The lusts of the flesh that floods in
Only in you do I have the strength
To feel your sweet peace within

Thank you dear Lord for your mercy
Thank you for your saving grace
Help me to walk with the Spirit each day
Until I see your sweet face
