Lyrics

Verse 1
Yield not to temptation,
For yielding is sin,
Each vict’ry will help you
Some other to win;
Fight manfully onward,
Dark passions subdue,
Look ever to Jesus,
He’ll carry you thro’.

Chorus
Ask the Saviour to help you,
Comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you thro’.

Verse 2
Shun evil companions,
Bad language disdain,
God’s name hold in rev’rence,
Nor take it in vain;
Be tho’tful and earnest,
Kind-hearted and true,
Look ever to Jesus,
He’ll carry you thro’.

Verse 3
To him that o’ercometh,
God giveth a crown,
Thro’ faith we shall conquer,
Tho’ often cast down;
He who is our Saviour,
Our strength will renew,
Look ever to Jesus,
He’ll carry you thro’.
