Sore Afflicted

Tried I've been, and sore afflicted;
Purged to set my spirit free
from the worthless gold and glitter
of a world still courting me.

God must slay the soulish passion,
for the world means naught to me;
Yet my frame so oft embraces
what the Spirit warns me flee.

Useless dross, my very being;
Yet some value caught His eye;
God's Spirit hid among the rubble
would emerge if I could die.

Flay this flesh, old self do sever;
Kill the soulish inner part;
Unveil the Savior ever living
in my redeemed, surrendered heart.
