Deliver Us From Evil

 

Deliver Us From Evil
By Marie C Neubauer
~

Help us not to be enticed
By the lofty pride of life,
Into sinful worldly ways,
Help us Lord to never stray,
That we ne’er be deceived,
By fleshly lusts and greed,
Jesus, deliver us by your might
Out of darkness into light!

Keeping eyes stayed on you,
Keeping hearts always true,
May your love in us abound,
Truth and holiness be found,
To this world not conformed,
As our hearts are transformed,
Deliver us by your might,
Out of darkness into light!

When this world shall pass away,
Earthly things shall all decay,
But your words shall endure,’
In you alone we are secure,
Lord, revive the hearts of men
Pour out your Spirit once again,
Jesus, deliver us by your might,
Out of darkness into your light!

~

‘Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world;
if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in Him,
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh,
the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, ae not of the Father but of the world,
And the world passes away and the lusts thereof:
but he that does the will of the Father abides forever.’
[1 John 2:15-17]
