Poem - Evil Shall Not Prevail

Evil Shall Not Prevail
© by M.S.Lowndes

The evil of darkness
Shall not prevail
Against the Lord’s redeemed
Though it arises
And tries to devour
All our hopes and our dreams

It will not defeat
What God has planned
What He has begun in us
If we hold firm to
The promises He gave
And on Him lean and trust

For He’s a big God
Well able to bear it
He holds the universe in His hands
For nothing’s too big
And nothing’s too small
For the God who understands

We cannot let evil
Get a foothold
Into our lives once more
Christ’s blood has cleansed
And redeemed us forever
No longer enslaved as before

The darkness we face
May not seem so dark
When the light of the Lord’s in us
Evil won’t conquer
Nor have a hold
As we abide in God’s perfect love
