Defeated Dominions

"Order my steps in Thy Word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me" (Psalm 119:133).  "By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.  When a man's ways please the LORD, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him" (Proverbs 16:6,7).  "Thus saith the LORD... I will defend this city to save it for Mine own sake" (Isaiah 37:33,35).  "As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a Stumblingstone and Rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed" (Romans 9:33). 

Let steps be ordered in God's Word
And not conformed to man's opinion. 
When this condition has occurred,
We shall be ruled by Christ's dominion. 

By grace and truth our sin was purged
When Jesus died to take our place,
And by the fear of God we're urged
To turn away from sin by grace. 

Let arrogant dominions cease
Within our hearts which have competed
With Christ our Lord, the Prince of Peace,
That sin in us may be defeated. 

Defeat the strongholds in us, Lord,
That we may thus be unashamed
As Your dominion is restored
And Your salvation is proclaimed!
