Yield Not to Temptation

Horatio R. Palmer (1868)

Lyrics

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’ll carry you through.

 

Refrain:

Ask the Savior to help you,

Comfort, strengthen, and keep you;

He is willing 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,

Kindhearted and true;

Look ever to Jesus,

He’ll carry you through.

[Refrain]

 

To him that o’ercometh,

God giveth a crown,

Through faith we will conquer,

Though often cast down;

He who is our Savior,

Our strength will renew;

Look ever to Jesus,

He’ll carry you through.

[Refrain]
