Yield Not To Temptation

Yield not to temptation,

For yielding is sin;

Each vict’ry will help you,

Some other to win;

Fight valiantly onward,

Your wicked heart subdue;

Look ever to Jesus,

He will carry you through.

 

Though weak you feel and wanting,

With darkness all around 

The world, the flesh, the devil,

Conspire to bring you down;

Do not forget your Master,

Who fought the same as you

Look ever to Jesus,

He will carry you through.

 

Ask the Savior to help you,

Comfort, strengthen and keep you;

He is willing to aid you,

Yes, he’ll carry, he will carry you through.

 

To him that o’ercometh,

God giveth a crown;

Through faith we will conquer,

Though often cast down;

He who is our Savior,

Our strength will renew;

Look ever to Jesus,

He will carry you through.

 

Ask the Savior to help you,

Comfort, strengthen and keep you;

He is willing to aid you,

Yes, he’ll carry, he will carry you through.

 

Ask the Savior to help you,

Comfort, strengthen and keep you;

He is willing to aid you,

Yes, he’ll carry, he will carry you through.
