Temptation

Temptation

.

.

Who are we?
Who are we?
To be as tempted as the Lord
By Satan
And his evil horde.

.

Jesus showed the way!
Jesus showed the way!
When Christ met the Devil,
Jesus
Showed the way.

.

From the Gospel of Matthew.

.

He walked the burning sands for forty days
Sandal seared feet and tortured tongue all dry
To purify and pray; to set the way.
Then Satan came to tempt and ask him, “Why”?

“Just change the stones.”

“Just change the stones.”

“You can change the stones to bread, if you try.”

.

.

Jerusalem, alone on Temple top,
The Evil One took Jesus to implore,
To let his body drop: for God will stop
The fall, before the body hits the floor.

“The angels will come”.

“The angels will come”.

“The angels will come, and hold you up”.

.

.

Before him, kingdoms of the world were spread,
All might and power promised to control,
If Master of Dread is worshiped ahead
Of God; he brashly asked Him to extol.

“Just worship me.”

“Just worship me. “

“Just worship me, it is yours”, Satan said.

.

.

“Be gone Satan”.

“Be gone Satan”.

“Be gone. To worship the true Lord’s my goal”.

When Satan fled from stench of his misdeeds,
The angles came and tended to His needs

.

.

So
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
When temptation has come on
Tell Satan
To “Be Gone”.
