I strive to follow you every day of my life,
But there’s war waging in me, so much conflict and strife
The old man, the new man, they are always at odd
It feels like my life is just a façade
An outward appearance of good I portray,
But the sin in my life brings shame to your name
Help me, please help me, I can’t do this alone,
But sometimes I feel like I’m all on my own
As a deer pants for the water, my soul longs after you
To live holy and righteous is what I desire to do
To bring glory and honor to the One who gave me new life
To live for my Savior with all of my might.
But those struggles are still there, between the old and the new
I can’t overcome them on my own, so I give them to You.
