lyrics

Old man evil tests his might on me
Seeing the light of Jesus within me
He seeks to lure me away from grace
But I'll stand firm and meet him face to face

His whispers echo, beguiling and sly
A cunning serpent with venomous lie
But I resist his deceitful embrace
Determined to remain in divine grace

In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above
Bound by faith and guided by love
With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway
Confronting temptations that come my way

Through storms and trials, I'll endure
For in my heart, faith remains pure
No matter how old man evil may strive
In God's embrace, my soul shall thrive

In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above
Bound by faith and guided by love
With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway
Confronting temptations that come my way

So, let him try his hand once more
For in this battle, I'll even the score
With Jesus as my guide and shield
I'll conquer the darkness, never to yield

In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above
Bound by faith and guided by love
With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway
Confronting temptations that come my way

Old man evil, your power is futile
For I'm rooted in a love so beautiful
In God's presence, I find solace and peace
As His divine grace grants my soul release

In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above
Bound by faith and guided by love
With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway
Confronting temptations that come my way

In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above
Bound by faith and guided by love
With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway
Confronting temptations that come my way …
