THE BATTLE HOT.
The warfare between good and evil
waxes intense. Right and wrong are
struggling for the mastery. Every individual
child of God is beset with countless
snares and dangers. Temptations
and lusts surround them on every side,
"The meanest foe of all the train
And yet we need not despair. The Captain
of our salvation is able to deliver
us, for he himself has met and vanquished
every foe. In him we are safe, under
him we shall be victorious. He maketh
us always to triumph in him. He subdueth
our enemies under us. "Thanks
be to God who giveth us the victory,
through our Lord Jesus Christ." Without
him we shall surely die, but trusting
him we shall never perish, and no one
can pluck us out of our Father's hand.
Has thousands and ten thousands slain."
"Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of your land.
Jesus Christ, our Father's Son,
Bids us undismayed go on."
