Preservation in Temptation
Happy is the one who endures testing, because when he has proven to be genuine, he will receive the crown of life that God promised to those who love him.
[Jas 1:12 NET]
When aught shall tempt my soul to stray
From heavenly wisdom’s narrow way,
To shun the precept’s holy light,
Or quit my hold on Jesus’ might,
May He who felt temptation’s power
Still guard me in that dangerous hour.
