How did you do it
when loneliness cried for fulfillment
how did you resist the evil
for your Father’s greater good

How did you do it
when anger threatened, unjust, to break
how did you hold back your words
for your Father’s higher love

How did you do it
hungry, thirsty, alone and tried
how did you resist such tempting
to serve your Father’s 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 forgiv’n

 

The Bible Tells me that He experienced all

the temptations that I experience... and won!
