181. When Satan Appears

10s or 11s.
by J. Newton
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
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
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
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
