I sit alone in my room once again

Doing penance for my sin

I stare at the cross, aged by years

And fill my eyes with bloody tears

For every upright act of grace

For every earthy time and place

A battle wages all around

Another sin to knock me down

I fight so hard to stand and face

The misery of another day

Winning once, and losing thrice

Forfeit virtue, gaining vice

As the hour festers near

I am powerless to fear

When I pray my heart does ache

My whole body begins to shake

I cannot fight this on my own

Or I shall never make it home

Where am I to turn, what am I to say, let my cry come unto thee

"Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on me"
