They persecute me daily, Lord,
But Iím not giving in;
You said if Iíd stand firm for You,
You would shelter me from them.
They stumble in the darkness, Lord,
But Iíll not leave Your light;
I know You want to shine through me,
And you keep me in Your sight.
They think theyíve won the battle,
But Iíll not be deceived;
You said each time I stand for You,
More grace You give to me.
They laugh and jeer and taunt me, Lord,
But Iíll not fold, nor bend;
Teach me how to persevere
And show Your love to them.

Therefore, I endure all things for the sake
of the elect, that they also may obtain the
salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal
glory. (II Timothy 2:10)
