Tempting Is The Devil's Fruit
Tempting is the devil's fruit,
Our faith does he assail.
If our own strength were all we had,
Then we should surely fail.
It calls out to our very souls,
Enticing us to sin.
Alluring smells from far-off lands,
Draw us from where we've been.
The Word of God the devil's fruit,
Tried in vain to replace.
But we have all the strength we need,
In our good Lord's sweet grace
Though All Around The Devil Prowls
Though all around the devil prowls
And tempts good men to fear.
Though he loudly shrieks and howls
He cannot harm us here.
His legions dark are terrible,
His armies are drawing near.
But we in Christ are strong and stable,
We have no need for fear.
So let the devil shriek and howl,
The battle has been won.
Though all around the devil prowls,
We have the light of God's dear Son.

Parents, sisters, all my kin;
I'm happy to have such wonderful friends,
Who love me wherever I've been.
I'm happy for my Father's love,
I'm happy for my Savior's gift.
I'm happy for the Spirit's life,
For the God who out of darkness lifts.
