I Dare Not Fight Alone

Andy Robison


To love the Lord and keep His word
Must be my lot in life
With Adversary pressing, though,
The journey is but strife.
To know the Christ is to obey,
This truth a man may know;
Transference to the heart is cruel
The devil presses so.
Oh, woe is mea man undone,
An unclean, wretched sort
Delighting in the law of God;
Yet frail to Satan's sport.
The war within my members must
At last give way to peace.
The Victor who can claim the tombs
Shall calm the restless beast.
"The world has a prince," said King
"And cast Him out, I will
"When I am lifted up from earth
"To bear the Father's will."
O, little one, your Savior, too
Has also groaned within;
By written word and tearful prayer
Defeated lure of sin.
So strive each day, determined heart
You do not beat the air.
Your vict'ry is assured in Him
Whose life escaped the snare.
Oh, woe is mea wretched man
So helpless on my own.
The pow'r of God shall be my trust,
I dare not fight alone.
