Standing in the evil day (Alternate Tune)

Standing in the evil day,
Heeding not what men may say,
Fearing not the face of clay,
  Christian soldier, stand.
Standing for the Word of God,
Standing for the precious blood,
Following where the saints have trod,
  Christian soldier, stand.
Stand 'mid Satan's every wile,
Stand 'mid pleasure's wanton smile,
Stand when error would beguile;
  Christian soldier, stand.
Stand till ends life's little day,
Stand for Jesus, come what may,
Stand and fight and watch and pray;
  Christian soldier, stand.

As I was considering these verses in the Word of God this morning, this hymn came to me. In such a dark age, we can stand against the evil tide, and shine forth Christ!

“They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works” – Titus 1:16

“Some having a form of Godliness but denying its power” – 2 Timothy 3:5

“False prophets come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” – Matthew 7:15

“As Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may be led astray from your simple and pure devotion to Christ” – 2 Corinthians 11:3

“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil” – Ephesians 6:11
