    The natural man comes easily—

    so much effort

    to do and be otherwise.

    The yielding stretches me

    beyond myself—

    and is painful.

    Drawing out the saint within

    requires submission

    to a Greater Power.

    The enticings are subtle;

    and though I fall,

    His grace puts off the enemy—

    and I become His child.
