SATAN'S TEMPTATIONS




Satan, by promised scenes of bliss,
Seeks the unthinking to ensnare;
Then plunges in the deep abyss
Of endless woe, and black despair.


The carnal mind is his abode,
And there he rules with sovereign sway;
‘Tis he who tempts our hearts from God,
And sends his Spirit grieved away.


First he allures the soul to sin,
And bids tumultuous passions rise;
Then spreads a horrid gloom within,
And flashes wrath before our eyes.


Saviour, restrain the tyrant’s power,
Bind him in adamantine chains;
Vain are his efforts to devour,
Where grace preserves, and Jesus reigns.
