Standing against Satan’s schemeing

(Ephesians 6:10-13)
In Jesus Christ be strong,
stand firm in his great might,
well-armed, for all day long
with Satan we must fight.
Defeated foe,
doomed enemy,
now hates to see
God’s kingdom grow.

He’s for a while allowed
to trouble, and with skill
he schemes to make us proud,
displease our God, do ill;
and knowing where
we’re weak, he tries
by clever lies
to tempt or scare.

The fellowship of saints
refines away their dross,
but Satan spreads complaints, –
he likes us to be cross.
He sets a snare
to make us trip,
from prayer to slip,
and doubt God’s care
.
[Tune: Millennium 6666 88]
