The devil didn't make me do it

The devil did this the devil did that
This is not true this is not fact

His only power is influence
It is people who do the actual offence

He tempts us daily this is true
But he is not allowed to lay a finger on you

It is our choice to do or not
It is we who put our heads on the block

No matter what the situation is
It is our choice how we react not his

God gave us free will to keep us free
He wants people to love Him by choice you see

True love is given not forced at all
And it is lack of this knowledge that makes most of us fall

So when your in trouble don't pass the buck
Ask forgiveness and kick the devil out of the truck
