The War Within



The War Within

Music Tom D Blakely


Flesh and spirit
At war each day,
The flesh serves ‘self’
Wants its own way.
The spirit seeks
To please my Lord,
To do His will –
Obey His Word!

Battles raging
Within my soul,
Flesh and spirit
Each want control.
The spirit seeks
To please my King
To make Him Lord
Over all things!

Through Christ Jesus
The battle’s won,
By His Spirit
I overcome.
Though in the flesh
The law of sin,
My mind is set
On serving Him!


“O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?
I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God,
but with the flesh the law of sin.”
[Romans 7:24-25]
