Come Close to Me

It’s hard to live
A life for Christ,

When all around,
and like a knife
that wounds your soul,
emburdens strife,

The world,
Its pleasures of the night.

And yet the iron’s
Never steel,
Until the wrath
Of fire feels.

So wary in a trial be,
Look out for each temptation seed.

But Oh! My Lord, I will sing,
“Every hour, come close to me.”
