The devil wants to steal and kill
A Christian’s faith and joy,
Our sense of peace and heart of praise
He’s plotting to destroy.
But Jesus comes to give us life
Abundant, full, and free
With joy and purpose, love and hope
That last eternally.
Between the two a war is on
And all must choose a side;
Surrender yields abundant life
That’s blest and satisfied.
Christina Joy Hommes
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
