Defeat him as only you can,

The end I cannot see.

O destroy the destroyer of man.

Lord, You’ll have to defeat the devil. 

We don’t have the strength.

We can’t do it alone, we can’t do it at length.

Lord, You’ll have to defeat the enemy,

Time and time again,

But there’s coming a day,

O glorious day,

When the battle will end.

 

There’s a the battle will end,

For the blood-washed of all ages,

The simple and the sages,

The kings and their pages.

There’s a final victory coming,

When the battle will be won.

Trials will end, Christ will descend,

The Father’s Redeeming Son.  – eab, 3/78

Written in Friendsville, Blount County, Tennessee.
