Last Night I Fought With The Devil

The devil is a cunning and deceitful being
He plays on your weakness like a guitar string

He hides around the corner, sees when you come unglue
Then at you he comes smiling, saying, this one’s through

Now listen!  Sometimes he gets you and have his way
But sometimes you fight, determined, I won’t sway

Last night he rose up like a lion and stood in my face
I stepped up, shoulders squared, a child of God’s grace

Stand back old Satan, from me get thee hence
I won’t retreat, I won’t surrender, stay on your side of the fence

I call on the Holy Spirit for divine intervention 
Arms were stretched wide for a fallen child prevention 

Don’t mess with me, old Satan, I have lots of clout 
Stick with me, I’ll tell you what it’s all about

You see, Christ died for me and saved me from hell
I am now His redeemed child, my soul I cannot sell
