SATAN A DREADED ENEMY




I fear the serpentís hiss,
The prowling lionís roar,
The tempterís fascinating wiles,
And his destroying power.


What subtle arts he tries,
To draw me into sin!
Presents thíalluring bait, but hides
The baneful hook within.


He makes fair promises
Of safety, peace and joy;
And where his craft does not prevail,
Heíll open force employ.


A thousand forms he takes,
As best may suit his end;
Now bright angel he appears,
And now a hateful fiend.


But why should I of him
Be slavishly afraid?
Jesus, whose heel the serpent bruised,
Shall bruise the serpentís head.
