12*. What Though Th' Accuser Roar

by Whitlock Gandy
What though th' accuser roar
Of ills that I have done!
I know them well, and thousands more:
Jehovah findeth none.
“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” (Revelation 12:10)
“And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” (Hebrews 10:17)
Sin, Satan, death appear
To harass and appall;
Yet since the gracious Lord is near,
Backward they go and fall.
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5)
Before, behind, around,
They set their fierce array,
To fight and force me from the ground,
Along life's narrow way.
I meet them face to face,
Through Jesus' conquest blest;
March in the triumph of His grace
Right onward to my rest.
There, in His book, I bear
More than a conqueror's name,
Of soldier, son and fellow-heir,
Who fought and overcame.
“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” (Romans 8:37)
