A common factor that denotes this walk. Though it’s different for each, its methods are the same. Its seductions are strong, and its lies lead to shame. It’s not temptation if it’s easy to resist. Yet by faith we overcome it.
Remember the feeling and anguish of soul When temptation comes to shatter your goal. Remember the pain and sadness of heart When progress is stalled; You're back at the start. Remember the lies that ring in your ear. Now you won't fall when victory's near. Remember the past-- You were here before-- And the grace you found; God's mercy in store. Remember your hope; Cast away your sigh. O joyous salvation descending from high!
