The Beauty of Temptation

The beauty of temptation
Lord Jesus help me
Help me in my weakness
To cling more tightly to you
And if my nails dig in
And cause your hands to bleed
It is because there is so much
So much that dazzles and draws
And tries to pull me
From you the Being and Source
Of all true beauty.
But if my heart were purer
And didn’t see the beauty in these things
The temptation would not be so fierce
Lord Jesus help me,
