Yield Not to Temptation

YIELD NOT TO TEMPTATION

"It is written", takes temptation
And makes it see its due
Jesus Christ the Word Himself
Has victory for you
So important is the matter
To be found in Him
Otherwise you live defeated
Caught up in your sin

Don't take second best for living
When Jesus is the One
He can give you true thanksgiving
Through His work as Son
Heaven came to earth to rescue
Sinners such as I
"It  is written" you old devil
Victory draweth nigh

Watch and pray, my brother
You know the flesh is weak
Be ye filled with the Spirit
"It is written" seek!
His Word, God's Word is true
Yield not to temptation
Seek ye first the Lord Jesus Christ
Enjoy so great Salvation

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
