Our Weak Flesh by Raymond A. Foss
Christ’s plea
facedown in the garden,
that the cup might be taken;
but submitting to God

How like the disciples
wanting to be faithful
asleep in our walk
our walk on this earth

Our weak flesh
our faith so timid
heeding the winds
our trials in this life
drawing us in

We need to follow
to trust in God’s strength
the example of Jesus
praying for guidance
and submitting to God
his body, his all.
