Yield Not to Temptation
Words and Music by Horatio R. Palmer

Matthew 26:41
"Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

          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 will carry you through.

            Chorus
            Ask the Savior to help you,
            Comfort, strengthen, and keep you,
            He is will to aid you,
            He will carry you through.

          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 will carry you through.

            Chorus
            Ask the Savior to help you,
            Comfort, strengthen, and keep you,
            He is will to aid you,
            He will carry you through.

          To him that o'er cometh God giveth a crown,
          Through faith we shall conquer, Though often cast down,
          He who is our Saviour, Our strength will renew.
          Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

            Chorus
            Ask the Savior to help you,
            Comfort, strengthen, and keep you,
            He is will to aid you,
            He will carry you through.
