Each day around us we find tremendous evil
Trying hard in our lives to make us change
Grabbing hold of all we find to be precious
Hoping fervently to drive our minds insane
For evil surely knows us so much better
Than we might truly really know ourselves
For it can reach deep inside of our souls
Letting us have a view of our former hells
In viewing we see we are but a step away
From all in the world which might make us fall
That easily might cause us to transgress again
Had we not turned from sin to answer Gods call
For our God knows when we are at our weakest
And he will never let us endure alone each day
For He will always arrive on time in our lives
Casting out the evil that in our lives tries to stay
For God has surely chosen all of those He loves
To daily remain safely within His tender embrace
So the evil trying to find many who belong to him
Each new day they’ll be blessed not to have to face
Because even if they do he will be there standing
Lifting up our lives with the power of His grace
As we believe in his promise to never leave us
So evil times we will never alone have to face.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil
For since He Himself was tempted in that which
He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid
of those who are tempted.
1 John, 4:4
Little children, you belong to God and have
overcome them, because the one who is in you
is greater than the one who is in the world.
How blessed is the man who endures temptation!
When he has passed the test, he will receive
the victor’s crown of life that God has promised
to those who keep on loving him.
