Alone he was victorious. If we will trust in God, and no longer lean on the arm of flesh, we shall be conquerors too; and as for any loss which we may have to put up with for Christ’s sake, we may rejoice in it.
Alone relying on the Lord,
The battle we shall win;
But if we trust an arm of flesh,
We fall a prey to sin.
Away, then, carnal confidence,
Let pride be overthrown;
Jesus shall be our sole defence;
We rest in him alone.
