The animal within 
A beast I’m not to tame 
But this indwelling sin 
Is dragon to be slain 

For out of its dark lair 
Comes all defilement 
Consuming this worm’s fare 
Is death by increment 

I have to kill these lusts 
But saying is not so 
By God’s Spirit I must 
Wage war against this foe 

With sober mind I will 
Take up the Spirit’s sword 
Know trial’s bitter pill 
Can’t match my great reward
