Know your God, your enemy, your heart

Able to keep you – King all-wise, –
yet he allows the Prince of lies                    (Know your God)
to bring temptations in your way,
teaching your need to watch and pray.

Real and malicious is our foe,
– cunning, – our weakest points he’ll know,
fiercely he hates our happiness,             (Know your enemy)
skilfully hinders holiness.

Indwelling sin will yearn and lust:
Christians in Christ must daily trust,      (Know your heart)
watch, and take care where weak, and pray
grace to resist, repent each day.
Tune: LM eg Duke Street (Fight the good fight)
