105. 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.

Chorus:
Ask the Saviour 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,
Kind-hearted and true,
Look ever to Jesus,
He'll carry you through.
[Chorus]

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