My side holds the torment of a spear.

I roam to seek relief from the suffering.

But God tells me it is just a thorn,

And He planted it for the increase of my hope in Him.


Why can’t I remove it?

Why?  Why?


‘Remember what I did for you?

I took the spear,

And I took the suffering,

And I took the pain,

And I took the sin.

I did all this for you,

So that life eternal is given to you.’


Lord, give me strength

Against the things of this world.

Because it is Thy will

That I have a thorn in my side,

May I accept

The greatness it will bring to me.


Thank you O Lord

For the spear that You took

And the thorn You gave for me.
