     6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. 10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. 11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.(KJV)

Rise! To Arms! With Prayer Employ You

1. Rise! To arms! With prayer employ you, 
O Christians, lest the Foe destroy you, 
For Satan has designed your fall. 
Wield God’s Word, a weapon glorious! 
Against each foe you’ll be victorious; 
Our God will set you o’er them all. 
Is Satan strong and fell? 
Here is Immanuel. 
Sing hosanna! 
The strong ones yield, 
With Christ our Shield, 
And we as conqueror’s hold the field. 

2. Cast afar this world’s vain pleasures, 
Aye, boldly fight for heavenly treasures, 
And steadfast be in Jesus’ might. 
He will help, whate’er betide you, 
And naught will harm with Christ beside you; 
By faith you’ll conquer in the fight. 
Then shame, thou weary soul! 
Look forward to the goal: 
There joy waits thee. 
The race, then, run; 
The combat done, 
Thy crown of glory will be won. 

3. Wisely fight, for time is fleeting, 
The hours of grace are fast retreating; 
Short, short, is this our earthly way. 
Then the trump the dead is waking 
And sinners all with fear are quaking, 
With joy the saints will greet that Day. 
Bless God, our triumph’s sure, 
Tho’ long we did endure 
Scorn and trial. 
Thou, Son of God, 
To Thine abode 
Wilt lead the way Thyself hast trod. 

4. Jesus, all Thy children cherish 
And keep them that they never perish 
Whom Thou hast purchased with Thy blood. 
Let new life to us be given 
That we may look to Thee in heaven 
Whenever fearful is our mood. 
Thy spirit on us pour 
That we may love Thee more– 
Hearts o’erflowing; 
And then will we 
Be true to Thee 
In death and life eternally. Amen.
