Greater is he that is in you …

The devil lies, and tries to make
the Christian’s peace and trust to break,
but God protects, for Jesu’s sake.

And Jesus prays in heaven still,
and firmly holds his sheep, until
they leave this world, and meet no ill.

Believe and study all God’s Word,
you’ll own a shield and precious sword;
be strong, and fight with strength from God.

The devil’s power was broken when
Christ bore God’s wrath against our sin, –
soon Satan into fire he’ll fling.
Tune: 888 iambic eg St Aidan by F R Grey
