The hardest steel will twist and bend
Diamonds will turn to dust
Man’s strongest force cannot defend
Against demonic lust

To keep us free of Satan’s charm
We need God’s Fire inside!
We need The Father’s mighty arm
And Jesus Christ as guide

We need to seek Salvation’s tree
Receive a robe of white
The Truth to bring us liberty
To walk The Way of Light

When Jesus’ blood has freed of stain
To service soon we’ll turn
We’ll die to self where Christ is gain
And fear of God will burn

It’s then we’ll bend like softened steel
All self will turn to ruin
It’s then we’ll see that God is real
And Christ is coming soon

Such joy will flood the heart and soul
Such peace will bless our mind
We’ll press towards our unseen goal
Quite sure one day to find

For all within The Saviours hand
Whom Jesus freed from jail
The promises of God will stand
All else will surely fail

So now we serve completely sure
Through Heaven’s awesome powers
As long as we in Christ endure
Eternal life is ours

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
