We shall not be defeated, this is the reason why.
We serve a God who is all powerful; our mutual friend is standing by.

He knows all about us, Jesus is His name.
Although we often fail Him, His mercy remains the same.

He knows all about our lives, from the beginning to the end.
Yet He forgives us daily, removing all of our sins.

The devil tries to harm us, continually causing us to fall down.
Yet Jesus is always right there, picking us up off of the ground.

The enemy tries to rob us of the peace that our God gives.
Yet we trust in the Lord, for in Him we truly live.

As we call on the our sweet Jesus, and tears began to flow.
He reminds us He forgave our sins, a long, long time ago.

We shall not be defeated, for we keep our eyes upon His face,
We know we are victorious, because of His mercy and grace.

This is so positive and encouraging! I think I need to print this one out and stick it on my fridge to read every morning!

The first sentence is so bold and strong, "We shall not be defeated" - what a strong declaration to make, and to follow it up with the reason why - Jesus! - this is something I know I need to do every single day!

May I make one small suggestion? Try to proof-read really closely before submitting; there were only a couple of teeny errors that caused me to lose the flow a bit.

Thank you for writing this awesome war cry! And be encouraged that, whether you 'place' in the rankings or not, your words have made a difference to at least one person - me! - and for a writer, there can be no greater reward! Well done.

I agree with what Helen wrote. I am going to print this and put it on my bathroom mirror so I can read this every morning and reaffirm my faith in the ever present Savior who is just a breath away.

Yes I agree, very nice praise poem. I also agree with Helen on the bit of tweaking needed to correct errors and to possibly improve flow. But very nice read. God Bless.

This is a lovely and powerful poem.
