Temptations

October 19, 2010

The stones could not be turned to bread,
Because it would have been a waste,
To even turn them all instead
Into the sons of Abraham.

The kingdoms of this world await
A ruler who would come to reign.
But LORD alone his name be praised!
The Kingdom was all set at hand.

A leap, a test of faith so feigned,
The angels would not dare descend!
For after all was done, they came
To raise Him to the throne attained.

The heart of stone turned heart of flesh,
The kingdom in our hearts He blessed.
By word he overcame these tests,
To grant us His eternal rest.
