THORN IN MY FLESH


It started some decades ago in my past

A drama in which I was unwillingly cast

Anxiety clouded my mind so fast

Crying alone, how long it would last

Days turned to weeks, 

then months, then years

Tried acting happy while choking back tears

Each day was getting more lost in my fears

Started to hate who I saw in the mirror

My heart would start to skip a few beats

Then I got sick every time I would eat

My body would shiver, I'd crank up the heat

Convinced myself that death I would meet

I felt so stressed I couldn't unwind

Searching for answers, but few i would find

Reclusive at times, so lost in my mind

Thank God for my wife, she was always so kind


Please God take this thorn

Take this thorn from me

Please God take this thorn

Come heal and set me free

Please God take this thorn

Take it out of me

Please God take this thorn

Not mine but your will be


I remember one year I hit a low

I begged the Lord please let me go

It wasn't time so He said no

Some answers soon He'd send me though

Like Paul prayed to remove his thorn

The body and the mind gets worn

The younger me I'd often mourn

Broken me I'd view with scorn

Sick one morning I soon did wake

I knew my Lord would not forsake

Counsel and His grace I'd take

A plan for mercy He would make

Even though my body fails

Through all the weakness strength prevails

My saviors' hands were pierced with nails

The risen Christ, in Him I hail


Please God take this thorn

Take this thorn from me

Please God take this thorn

Come heal and set me free

Please God take this thorn

Take it out of me

Please God take this thorn

Not mine but your will be


Oh please God take this thorn

Take this thorn from me

Please God take this thorn

Come heal and set me free

Please God take this thorn

Take it out of me

Please God take this thorn

Not mine but your will be
