Another just like all the ones before.
Presently in its most intense stages,
A situation too great to ignore.
With no mercy, the dread enemy moves;
Exploiting weakness, depleting my strength.
This failing defense of mine only proves
They'll go to any necessary length.
For a moment I think--what if I lost?
Could I give in to my unearthly foe?
'T would bring short pleasure at too high a cost.
'T is greater to persevere through the woe.
I know that when this hard battle is won,
I'll have victory--the King already won.
