1 Yield not to the tempter; pass by, and be free;
For yielding is ruin, and sorrow for thee;
Why should you now barter the jewel of youth,
With shame for your honor, and wrong for the truth?
Yield not to the tempter; pass by, and be free;
For yielding is ruin, and sorrow for thee.
2 Yield not to the tempter; turn quickly away;
Go, mingle with honor in life’s busy fray;
Fall not from your station, whatever it be;
Keep clear from the danger that beckons to thee. [Refrain]
3 Yield not to the tempter; be firm and be true;
And God, in your weakness, your strength shall renew;
To Him your petition send upward again,
That you may be ever a man among men. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #8123
