10-20-14 The Lord’s Prayer 05a: Deliver Us

temptation of st anthony

O Father, save us from temptation’s snare,

The kind that lead us far away from You.

If You must test us, help us stay aware

Your trials help to keep us wise and true.

The Devil may attempt to feed us doubt;

He may tempt to distrust the Holy Ghost.

O God, though trouble circles us about,

Deliver us from evil’s hoary boast.

Emancipate our minds from wicked thoughts

And save our souls from Satan’s hateful ways;

Your Son and our Redeemer Jesus taught

That we should call on You, God, when we pray.

So lead us not into temptation’s hold.

Deliver us from evil, make us bold.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil

Matthew 6:13 KJV
