Jesus Christ, for forty days
Tempted, for out sakes, to sin,
Face to face with Anti-Christ,
won, as we must win.
'If you are what you presume,
Use these stones to feed the poor!'
Anti-Christ knows all the tricks,
Counts us one fool more.
'God will never let you down,
If you risk your neck for him!'
Anti-Christ can quote a text,
When it suits his theme.
'Conquer, then unite the world:
What a world it them could be!'
Anti-Christ will show us how,
If we bow the knee.
'By my Spirit', says the Lord;
'There can be no other way!'
Anti-Christ, defeated, goes;
Comes another day.
Jesus, in these same testing times
Teach your servant how to know
Truth from error, right from wrong,
Friend from cunning Foe.
