Hes knocking on my door Lord
That old devil in disguise
Hes trying mighty hard Lord
To tempt me with his lies.

Hes whispering in my ear Lord
And I know You gave me a choice
But hes whispering soft and gentle Lord
With such a charming voice.

So, Im asking for Your help Lord,
Through each and every day
For only with Your help Lord
Can I chase temptation away.

You know its really hard Lord,
For You were tempted too
But You rebuked that tempter Lord
And I want to be like You.

So help me lock the door Lord
Then throw away the key.
Cease his tempting voice Lord
And let my thoughts dwell on Thee.

Let me feel Your loving presence,
Bestow Your sweet peace on me
Keep me ever in Your presence
Now and throughout eternity.
