1 The souls that would to Jesus press
Must fix this firm and sure:
That tribulation, more or less,
They must and shall endure.

2 From this there can be none exempt;
'Tis God's own wise decree,
Satan the weakest saint will tempt,
Nor is the strongest free.

3 The world opposes from without,
And unbelief within;
We faint, we fear, we grieve, we doubt,
And feel the load of sin.

4 Glad frames too often lift us up;
And then how proud we grow!
'Till sad desertion makes us droop;
And down we sink as low.

5 Ten thousand baits the foe prepares
To catch the wandering heart;
And seldom do we see the snares,
Before we feel the smart.

6 But let not all this terrify,
Pursue the narrow path;
Look to the Lord with steadfast eye
And fight with hell by faith.

7 Though we are feeble, Christ is strong,
His promises are true,
We shall be conquerors all ere long,
And more than conquerors too.
