I looked within myself to see
The beauty of my soul,
Surprised to recognize there be
A thing I must control.
Did God create me with this flaw,
Self-will that lurks so deep;
A fight from which I can't withdraw
Before I'm laid to sleep?
Yes! There's something in me I don't trust,
A monstrous evil knave
Within my mind. A thing I must
Defeat, my soul to save.
