How did you do it

when loneliness cried for fulfillment

how did you resist the evil

for your Fathers greater good

 

How did you do it

when anger threatened, unjust, to break

how did you hold back your words

for your Fathers higher love

 

How did you do it

hungry, thirsty, alone and tried

how did you resist such tempting

to serve your Fathers purer cause

 

How did you do it

when facing night or blazing dawn

how did you voice unutterable praise

from merely human lips

 

How did you do it

alone, facing death, in highest agony

how did you bear my endless sin

that I could be forgivn

 


 

The Bible tells me that He experienced all

the temptations that I experience, and won!
