Tempted

Tempted by gratification,
Which will leave only a hollow;
Tempted by attention –
Unproductive drama;
Tempted by power
To achieve unworthy ends;
Forty days shall not see lost
Any thing the Lord cannot redeem

In the fasting He shall feed us
In the thirsting He shall refresh
In the faithfulness He draws near to us
Temptation shall not prevail –
Take refuge in God and rejoice!
His favour shall be our shield!
