This is no time for the devil, make no room for him in your heart.
All he needs is a 1/8 of an inch of space in your mind.
To tear your whole life apart.
He knows his time is short now, like a lion he's out on a roar.
It's your life and precious relationship with God
that that old devil really wants to destroy.
He'll use everything he can against you to your
familes, your job and foes.
And yes, sometimes our own iimperfections
can make that devil aglow.
So don't give your heart to the devil
rely on God by persevering in prayer.
And just when you think you can't take it no more
God's power will substain you through his loving care.
