Let the words pour forth as lips retell
one of the great tales of the days of old,
about a man endowed with power and strength
but severely lacking in self-control;
he was tempted to unite his heart
to one who couldn’t walk his paths
and in the process, he lost his soul.
I can relate to the struggles of this son of man
and how it isn’t always easy to follow God’s plan,
for even when we know we are created for greatness,
we can readily settle for far less,
being overcome by the fleshly desires
for that Philistine woman named, Delilah.
