Lyrics : The Temptation
Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness
To be tempted by the devil in many ways
After fasting forty days, He was hungry
And that is when He heard the tempter say
If you are the Son of God, turn these stones into bread
If you are the Son of God, then do what I’ve said
But Jesus replied; “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone,
But by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
The devil then took Him to the Holy city
And on the highest point of the temple made Him stand
And as He looked down upon the people
He heard the tempter challenge Him again.
If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here
The angels will bear you up, what is there to fear?
But Jesus replied; “It is said, you shall not put your Lord to the test
But trust His Word alone, above the rest.
Then the devil took Him high upon a mountain
And showed Him all the kingdoms of this world
Everything a man could ever wish for 
The devil turned and said “it can be yours!”
The only thing you have to do, is simply bow to me
For it is mine to give away, just bend your knee
But Jesus replied; It is written, you shall worship the Lord your God
And Him alone shall you serve.
Now you and I will face temptation
As we walk through this life each day
But there will never be one we can’t conquer
For He has promised to provide us an escape.
And all we really have to do, is simply turn to Him
No matter how hard it seems, we don’t have to sin
For Jesus says; It is written, if you’ll submit to me
And then resist the devil, he will flee.
