     14 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered. 15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. 16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. 18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. 19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. 20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. 21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: 22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. 24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

     27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. 28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.(KJV)

1. Come, follow me, the Savior spake, 
All in My way abiding; 
Deny yourselves, the world forsake, 
Obey My call and guiding. 
Oh, bear the cross, whate’er betide, 
Take my example for your guide. 

2. I am the Light, I light the way, 
A godly life displaying; 
I bid you walk as in the day, 
I keep your feet from straying. 
I am the Way, and well I show 
How you must sojourn here below. 

3. My heart abounds in lowliness, 
My soul with love is glowing, 
And gracious words my lips express, 
With meekness overflowing. 
My heart, My mind, My strength, My all, 
To God I yield, on Him I call. 

4. I teach you how to shun and flee 
What harms your soul’s salvation, 
Your heart from every guile to free, 
From sin and its temptation. 
I am the Refuge of the soul 
And lead you to your heavenly goal. 

5. Then let us follow Christ, our Lord, 
And take the cross appointed 
And, firmly clinging to His Word, 
In suffering be undaunted. 
For who bears not the battle’s strain 
The crown of life shall not obtain.
