Temptation to Self-Indulgence

I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1 Cor. 9:27

When thy statutes I forsake,
When my graces dimly shine,
When my covenant I break,
Jesus, then remember thine:
Check my wanderings
By a look of love divine.
