Thorn In The Flesh

Though I suffer Lord You know my pain
Though I prayed still it does remain.
Does my faith lack or is it some sin?
No! thank God, I am forgiven.

I would rather know Your strength in me
Than by self wander strong and free;
For this thorn that touches all I do
Always keeps me close to You.

Though I suffer Lord You know my pain
Though I prayed still it does remain.
Does my faith lack or is it some sin?
No! thank God, I am forgiven.

‘…A thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.’
[2 Corinthians 12: 7-9]
