Yield Not to Temptation – hymn

This one came to At Home Dad’s mind today and then stuck in my own. What encouraging sentiment. I really like the reminder that each time you conquer a temptation, it strengthens you for the next one. We know from Paul’s writings that we will face problems in this world. So, strength to not yield to the temptations that arise during persecutions strengthens us to continue the fight, to be stronger, to focus more decidedly on Jesus. He is carrying you.

It is also such a good reminder to be in prayer. We read in the Bible that we should pray.

I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

At Home.

 

Yield Not To Temptation

words and music: Horatio R. Palmer (1868)

Yield Not to Temptation1 Yield not to temptation,
For yielding is sin;
Each vict’ry will help you,
Some other to win;
Fight valiantly onward,
Evil passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus,
He will carry you through.

Refrain:
Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you through.

2 Shun evil companions,
Bad language disdain;
God’s name hold in rev’rence,
Nor take it in vain;
Be thoughtful and earnest,
Kindhearted and true;
Look ever to Jesus,
He will carry you through. [Refrain]

3 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. [Refrain]
