Matthew 4:1-11

The devil tempted Christ that he
might sin, no longer fit to be
a sacrifice for you and me.

The devil tempted Christ to turn –
his Father’s will to doubt or spurn,
but on God’s Word the Son stood firm.

The devil tempted Christ to test
his Father’s care – such sin resist.
Do not misuse the Scripture text.

The devil tempted Christ to lust
for glory vain by misplaced trust.
Satanic lures abhor, detest.

Defeated Satan went away;
and angels served Christ’s needs, so pray
God’s help to battle day by day.
