There’s no utopian path of ease Where trials won’t be met; I Peter 5:7-11
There’s no utopian path of ease Where trials won’t be met; Where I can think the prize to seize Without the lion’s threat.
The devil walks about to seek For souls he may devour. He preys on those whose faith is weak And takes them in his power.
I can’t expect that I won’t face The devil in his might, But I can trust the God of grace To give me strength to fight.
Resist the devil. He will flee. I do not need to hide. By faith I have the victory, And strength because I’m tried.
God lets me suffer for a while And hear the lion’s roar, To strengthen by the fiery trial And stablish me the more.
To Him be glory, power, and praise On whom my cares are cast; He’s called me unto endless days Of glory unsurpassed.
