Yield not to temptation – sin is bigger than you think

Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
Each victory will help you other to win;
Fight manfully onward; dark powers subdue;
Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

Ask the Saviour to help you,
Confort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you through.

Shun evil companions; bad language disdain;
God’s name hold in reverence, nor take it in vain;
Be thoughtful and earnest, kind-hearted and true;
Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

To him that o’ercometh God giveth a crown;
Through faith we shall conquer, though often cast down;
He who is our Saviour our strength will renew;
Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

Horatio Richmond Palmer, 1834-1907
