Temptations May Come And Threaten Thy So


Temptations may come and threaten thy soul,
The billows of trial may over thee roll,
Remember that God over all has control
And none of these things can harm thee.

Refrain:
Fear none of these things, God rules over all;
Why should they dismay or alarm thee?
Just keep thyself wholly in his loving hand,
And one of these things can harm thee.

The powers of sin thy heart may assail,
And struggle with might o’er thy faith to prevail,
But let not your courage and hopefulness fail,
For none of these things can harm thee. [Refrain]

Affliction and sorrow may sometimes appear,
And labor to rob thee of gladness and cheer;
Remember your Helper is constantly near,
And none of these things can harm thee. [Refrain]

O be not affrighted! courageously stand!
The whole of thy life thy dear Father has planned;
He holds each event in his own guiding hand,
And none of these things can harm thee. [Refrain]
