Demons Dispelled

"Thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong" (Joshua 17:18).  "The rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous" (Psalm 125:3).  "The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil" (Proverbs 19:23).  "Then they… came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind" (Luke 8:35). 

When Joshua dispelled the doubt
Regarding foes within the land,
He said that they would drive them out
Because it was the Lord's command. 

Though Satan's hordes are surely strong,
They are no match for Christ our God. 
The Devil taunts us all day long,
But God shall soon remove his rod. 

It's wise to fear the Lord alone,
Who died and rose on our behalf
To satisfy and save His own
And to dispel our foes as chaff. 

O Lord, how gladly we've beheld 
That joyful man before you seated
From whom the demons were dispelled,
For thus we see ourselves completed.
