‚ÄúTHE FLESH LUSTETH AGAINST THE SPIRIT.‚ÄĚ GAL 5. 17
‚ÄúThe flesh lusteth against the Spirit.‚ÄĚ Gal 5. 17 J. Newton 112th 1 Strange and mysterious is my life; What opposites I feel within! A stable peace, a constant strife; The rule of grace, the power of sin; Too often I am captive led, Yet often triumph in my Head. 2 I prize the privilege of prayer, But O what backwardness to pray! Though on the Lord I cast my care, I feel its burden every day; I‚Äôd seek his will in all I do, Yet find my own is working too. 3 I call the promises my own, And prize them more than mines of gold; Yet though their sweetness I have known, They leave me unimpressed and cold; One hour upon the truth I feed, The next I know not what I read. 4 Thus different powers within me strive, And grace and sin by turns prevail; I grieve, rejoice, decline, revive, And victory hangs in doubtful scale; But Jesus has his promise passed That grace shall overcome at last.
