I Played Cards With the Devil

I played cards with the devil
Thought that I could win.
I played cards with the devil
 I wouldn’t do that again.
.
Thought I was a winner 
Had a full house aces high. 
Bet my money and my soul 
As I looked him in the eye.
.
He just kind of grinned at me. 
I felt there is something wrong. 
Then I felt the table shake 
Was in a place I don’t belong.
.
“You know that I’m royalty, “
He said with mighty roar. 
“For I have a royal flush 
Now you have a soul no more.”
.
Guess I took for granted 
In faith of the lord above. 
If I could play my cards again 
Would have bet upon his love.
.
Maybe it’s too late for me 
For I’m in the devils grasp. 
Now my blood run cold 
Since being bitten by his asp.
.
So ask of you sweet Jesus 
Let me come to you and pray.
I promise my faith in you 
Again will never go astray.
.
Jesus I have learned my lesson 
You have taught me very well.
If you play cards with the devil 
Your going straight to Hell.

    Hi there , I'm a Muslim and I respect Prophet Jesus(may peace be upon him) as a messenger of God not as the sun of God....and he will land at the end of days. Islam is the final religion for a reason ....Regards,Hammam
