Title: When We Are Tempted to Deny Your Son
Composer: Louis Bourgeois, 1542; abridged
Author: David W. Romig, 1965
1. When we are tempted to deny Your Son, Because we fear the anger of the world, And we are few who bear the insults hurled, Your will, O God, be done. 2. When we are tempted to betray Your Son, Because He leads us in a harder way, And makes demands we do not want to pay, Your will, O God, be done. 3. When we forget the cross that held Your Son, And would avoid the burden of this life, The cry for justice and an end to strife, Your will, O God, be done. 4. When doubt obscures the victory of Your Son, And faith is weak and all resolve has fled, Help us to know Him risen from the dead; Your will, O God, be done.
