Christ the Strength of the Tempted
But he said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me.
[2 Cor 12:9 NET]
Why should I fear the darkest hour,
Or tremble at the tempter’s power!
Jesus vouchsafes to be my tower.
Though hot the fight, why quit the field?
Why must I either fear or yield,
Since Jesus is my mighty shield?
