There is also an option to listen to this Poem if you would like to. Just click on the link above the title of the poem. You will need to have 'Real Player' installed on your computer to hear the poem. Please also turn your sound up a bit - as it may be a little soft. Music is the song 'Time Interupted' by David Delgado and used with permission. To listen to his music, please visit his site Wordless Worship. Hope you enjoy! You may translate the poem into your own language if you want a copy of it in its 'translated' form for yourself or for a friend you want to share it with - making sure the translation is 'accurate' though. But if you are using the 'google translator' tool I've placed on my site, you will need to check the accuracy of the translation on the google translate web page, as it may not have translated correctly - and even then you may need to copy and paste the English version line by line (as well as check the odd word for meaning and context) to get it 'more accurate' as google's translate web page isn't completely accurate either. I'm sorry that it may take longer if you want this poem in your own language, but it needs to be correct because if it isn't, it will lose its meaning. Machine translators can never be as accurate as a human translator, so please do check!

Lord, I need your help
When daily I am faced
With temptation to do what's wrong,
Lord, I need your loving grace

I feel so very desperate
And I try to do my best,
Why can't I be stronger, Lord,
And rise above the flesh?

All the power that I need,
Your Holy Spirit provides
I need to keep my trust in you
And my flesh, I must deny

He knows just how we feel
When temptation comes to us
And provides a way of escape
When we have had enough

We must trust to Him each day
That He'll be with us all,
So we may bear up under it
And be stronger in the Lord.
