There is a shadow that we fear
Its size increasing year by year
It towers o’er our greatest aim
And poses threats to God’s good name,
The world appears to welcome all
Who answer to old Satan’s call
While sadly, they may do his will
Until their lives at last are still.
Oh Lord above, please bring us peace
From evil’s grip grant us release,
Help us accept Your quiet ways
Increase our love and guard our days !
