One of my favorite hymns is Yield not to Temptation. It contains words and tune by Horatio R. Palmer. The first line, of this well-known church song, states, “Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin; each victory will help you some other to win; fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue; look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.”
This hymn shouts the message that Christians need to strive for victory over the temptation to commit sin. It is the victories, not defeats in life, that give us testimonies.
