Be Strong

Be strong, fear not, resist

Remember who you love

Be willing to give everything

And set your mind on things above

The battle lines are drawn

The enemy is strong

But even greater still is He

Who heals our hearts and sets us free

I hear Him telling me

To lose my foolish pride

And count as loss all gain to me

Except to battle by His side

The world has no allure

My hope it is secure

With power perfectly pure

In Him the victory is sure

Be strong, fear not, resist

The enemy will flee

The one who rules the universe

Has come to live inside of me
