401. Yield Not to Temptation

1 Yield not to temptation,
For yielding is sin,
Each vict'ry will help you
Some other to win;
Fight manfully onward,
Dark passions subdue,
Look ever to Jesus -
He'll carry you through.

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'll carry you through. [Chorus]

3 To him that o'ercometh
God giveth a crown,
Thru faith we shall conquer,
Tho often cast down;
He who is our Savior,
Our strength will renew,
Look ever to Jesus -
He'll carry you through. [Chorus]
