Poem

Kept by Grace

Michael Beck Michael Beck

Child I cannot keep you, if you won’t keep yourself
I will not always put things upon a higher shelf
You must make a decision – to love Me when alone
Like Joseph when seduction was in his master’s home
I’ve given you the weapons to stand in evil day
Through Christ who went before you there always is a way
To turn from every evil and not be overcome
To banish every devil and put them on the run
But though you are positioned through grace to make your stand
All that I have given you must stay within your hand
Take up your holy armor, lift up your holy shield
Quench every dart of Satan, to darkness never yield
This is your holy privilege, this is your holy right
To walk on highest places, and never lose a fight
My part was done on Calvary, provision has been made
Now you must do your own part and walk in what I gave
