Herodians and Pharisees

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 Herodians and Pharisees,
They join with one accord;
And as united enemies,
Seek to destroy our Lord.

2 Tho' they applaud him to his face,
And seem to take his part:
They like a false and viper race,
Hate him with all their heart.

3 Where Satan governs all the mind,
And rules the inward man;
there are the pow'rs of darkness join'd
to do what harm they can.

4 All Christian must be on their guard,
And wrath on ev'ry hand;
They must be tempted like our Lord,
By Satan and his band.

5 But Christ, their great and mighty head,
Who all their danger knows;
Will disappoint what snares are laid
By them, their crafty foes.
