QUIETLY THE TEMPTER CALLS
By Patrick N. Kramer,
Written July 22, 2009

The Tempter to us does speak.
To plant wickedness he does seek.
Within our hearts he plants each day.
His seeds to take us the wrong way!

His seeds of ill thought he loves to plant.
Within our souls he loves to rant.
Rant he does of things untrue.
He is always attempting to mislead you.

To mislead you he truly does desire.
Away; from the light and into his fire.
Into his fire he desires for you to burn.
His methods for all it is best to learn.

Learn to not listen to the Temper we must do.
For the words he whispers are far from true.
Yet gently he whispers them into your ear.
For the Tempter indeed is always near.

The Tempter is always knocking upon your soul’s door.
Always knocking and calling come with me once more.
Deceitfully calling you to come into the Tempter’s way!
Calling and tempting you as quietly leads you astray.
