Christian song about resisting temptation

It’s difficult to keep oneself pure as a young Christian. We are surrounded by impurity at school and in the media, and temptations that sometimes lie just one click away are sometimes great. But what do you really want? Do you want to keep yourself completely pure for God, or would you rather feed your lusts secretly in the hidden?

If you have made a decision to keep yourself pure, but need strength to stick to it, this Christian song about resisting temptation is a powerful encouragement to hold on to your decision! Have a decided mind! Don’t give in!

Lyrics:

When you’re all alone and no one’s watching you,
Does it matter, then, you wonder, what I do?
Can I say and go wherever, as I please?
Can I let into my heart vain thoughts like these?

Youthful lusts will tempt you as life’s way you go.
And it takes a fearsome battle to say, No!
With God’s power and a firm decided mind,
You the joy of victory will surely find.

Your decided mind
Keeps the world outside!
Just like Joseph, with determination say:
O dear God, how can I sin, let this evil in?
From such wickedness I’ll always flee away.

From your early youth become a warrior true,
When temptations come, resist! He’ll strengthen you!
Jesus lives and intercedes for you each day,
And with Him beside you victory you’ll gain.

He who overcomes, God’s promises will gain.
In God’s temple as a pillar he’ll remain.
Filled with joy and happiness you’ll surely be.
Soon with Jesus you will reign eternally.

Your decided mind
Keeps the world outside!
Just like Joseph, with determination say:
O dear God, how can I sin, let this evil in?
From such wickedness I’ll always flee away.
