Green, Al - Yield Not To Temptation Lyrics

Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin
Each victory will help you or some others to win
Fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue
Look ever to Jesus and He'll carry you through

Just ask the Savior to help you
To comfort, strengthen and keep you
He is willing to aid you
And He will carry you through

Ask the Savior to help you
To comfort, strengthen and heal you
Oh, He is willing to aid you
Jesus will carry you through

Shun evil companions, bad language disdain
God's name hold in reverence, don't take it in vain
Be thoughtful and honest, kindhearted and true
Look ever to Jesus, He'll carry you through

Oh, ask the Savior to help you
To comfort, strengthen and keep you
Oh, He is willing to aid you
Jesus, He will carry you through

All I wanna do is ask the Savior to help you
Comfort, strengthen and keep you
He is willing to aid you
And He will carry you through

I wanna just ask the Savior to help you
To comfort, strengthen and keep you
He is willing to aid you
He will carry you through

    Oh Amen! The last verse has been on my mind the past few days. You sing this as my soul wants to sing!
    Jesus, the Righteous One, suffered to pay for my sin while I was a slave. Now Jesus not only calls us brothers, but friends.
    Keep strong in faith. You sing so well.

  11. Lynette Beckles

    One of the firat hymn's I sang as a solo at the age of 10. The words of this song have stayed with me as an adult. Hymn lyrics are extremely powerful if you really listen to the words. Sometimes the words of today's music lacks the real biblical principles. Thank you for sharing Hasan.

    1 Yield not to temptation,
    For yielding is sin;
    Each vict’ry will help you,
    Some other to win;
    Fight valiantly onward,
    Evil passions subdue;
    Look ever to Jesus,
    He will carry you through.
    Ask the Savior to help you,
    Comfort, strengthen and keep you;
    He is willing to aid you,
    He will carry you through.
    2 Shun evil companions,
    Bad language disdain;
    God’s name hold in rev’rence,
    Nor take it in vain;
    Be thoughtful and earnest,
    Kindhearted and true;
    Look ever to Jesus,
    He will carry you through. [Refrain]
    3 To him that o’ercometh,
    God giveth a crown;
    Through faith we will conquer,
    Though often cast down;
    He who is our Savior,
    Our strength will renew;
    Look ever to Jesus,
    He will carry you through. [Refrain]

  43. Solo Budget-Vegan

    Yo, Hasan. I was living in South Korea when I found this videos (2012). This song speaks so clearly about what our life focus. Jesus. "Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin. Each victory will aid you, some other to win"! Words that cut, but give life. Thank you! I didn't even know this was a hymn. It's not in my denominational hymnal, but it has become my FAVORITE hymn, and whenever I am tempted I quote scripture, pray, and sing this song.


    Solo Budget-Vegan yes lord! it's my fav hymn as well because of the lyrics! we have victory over temptation

  67. Dublinbird Hanson

    I haven't heard this song in many years and it has been playing in my head all day. I am so blessed to find you singing this tonight. Beautifully done! Thank you!

  68. karen y spann

    Hasan Green, this is one of my favorites (I love your videos). I grew up in the deep, dirty South, but I learned some very "clean" values. This hymn and many others are forever etched in my memory, because I had a grandaddy named Johnny Jenkins, Jr. who picked me up every Sunday for Sunday school. I also had a mother who made us go to church "religiously" (pun intended).  This song is very relevant to me to this day. I literally just "yielded to temptation" a few days ago. The devil is always on the prowl to entice you. But, I did not "Yield to Temptation". Thanks for posting. Just lovely!!!

  69. Margaret Brodie

    I remember singing this song in Sunday school and Church when I was 5 years old. They don't sing songs like this anymore, and that's so sad. My Dad use to sing all those old songs to us. Dad I miss you!


    No sis, the true body of Christ abound and new generation that still sings this Holy Spirit given song and much more, please ask the Lord to lead you to His body where the cross centred gospel is being preached and men carry their cross and follow Jesus everyday ❤

  70. Mikey Musique

    Great Job Man! I'm a minister of Music at a Baptist Church where I've been playing for a year and a half! The pastor pops hymns on me like it ain't nothing! I'm glad I stumbled upon this bc it has helped me get the correct tempo and feel for it! Thanks again!

  71. Jenna Wallace

    Just beautiful!

  72. Joshua Arthur

    We sang this in the adventist church

    justkeep'n itreal

    No such thing as a Seventh day Adventist church, nope nowhere in the bible. Roman 10:17 " so then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God ". Man started that church and if man started your church it will be uprooted by God (Matthew 15:13) because it's a Tare church not Wheat
