The Champion against the thief


The Son of Man defeats Satan

Robbing of purpose
robbing of joy,
the thief who deceives us
desires to destroy,
damaging, causing
sadness and grief
all is confusing
– who’ll bring relief?

Needing a Champion
to conquer the foe,
and re-provision
mercy to know
This Man could win us
happiness, peace
new sense of purpose
freedom, release.

Satan was conquered
now held under rein
still he can tempt us
from good and from gain.
Knows what his end is,
that Jesus has power
and we know our Friend is
our strength every hour.

Tune: 54 54 54 54 eg ‘Thine own way’ by George Stebbins (tune of ‘Have Thine own way, Lord’
