Standing Firm

Why am I convicted on the holy grounds
But in the flesh I feel nothing.
Why don't I stand strong when I am on the battlefield
But when I'm in the holy place I am like a rock standing firm in the ground.

Isn't it more importanat to be firm when I am with you,
But isn't it more important to be firm when I am on hte battlefield fighting for you.

I may seem firm in the human eye but I am like mesh in the eye of the spirt.

[Hata Bildir]
