181. When Satan Appears

10s or 11s.
by J. Newton
1
When Satan appears
 
To stop up our path,
 
And fill us with fears,
 
We triumph by faith;
 
He cannot take from us,
 
Though oft he has tried,
 
The heart-cheering promise,
 
The Lord will provide.
1 Peter 5:8; Genesis 22:8,14
2
He tells us we're weak,
 
Our hope is in vain,
 
The good that we seek
 
We ne'er shall obtain;
 
But when such suggestions
 
Our spirits have tried,
 
This answers all questions,
 
The Lord will provide.
2 Corinthians 11:14
3
No strength of our own,
 
Or goodness we claim;
 
Yet since we have known
 
The Saviour's great name,
 
In this, our strong tower,
 
For safety we hide,
 
The Lord is our power,
 
The Lord will provide.
Psalm 88:4; Romans 5:6; Romans 7:18; Psalm 61:3; Proverbs 18:10; Isaiah 41:10
4
Should life sink apace,
 
And death be in view,
 
This word of His grace
 
Shall comfort us through;
 
No fearing or doubting,
 
With Christ on our side,
 
Through faith we'll die shouting,
 
The Lord will provide.
Psalm 23:4; Romans 8:31; Psalm 56:9
