They came disguised as angels to one He had forgave
To make him fall unfaithful and drag him to the grave
He did not drink the water in Hell the night before
Would not deny the Father and bravely fought that war
Had seen the fiery ocean and kissed the lame man’s feet
Held tight the weeping woman and watched the demons eat
A man with pitch-black eyes said, “they love the world they’re in.”
“They believe the ancient lie and you will never win.”
He then became a cobra with two heads in the sand
“Forsake the name Jehovah or never leave my land.”
With God’s Word the serpent fell he’s said to say, “Not here.”
With the Lord departed Hell without defeat or fear.
Safely in the living world believing all was won
Shared this with a kindred soul but Satan was not done
Something strong was drawing near sons sleeping in their beds
“If I fight this battle here by morning I’ll be dead.”
When all was calm they came back pretending to be friends
Offered gifting for attack to be God’s champion
“Lay on back and let us work. We will anoint you now…”
“Do not fear, it will not hurt, before you we all bow.”
It was pleasure uncompared, sensations, oh so great!
Demons had him in their snare and now it was too late.
Frantically, he tried to stand they pulled him toward the ground
Pulled them off with their bare hands but could not keep them down
Fervent prayers in Jesus’ name to bind their hands and feet
Laughing, dragging, their own chains they pawed defenseless meat
Answered prayer, the Lord was there He said, “No drop of blood”
“Anything but death is fair, He’ll praise me, drought or flood”
Morning would be coming soon then surely they’d be gone
Struggling in the light of moon he longed to see the dawn
Then there was no fight inside I said, “Your will be done.”
Closed my eyes as if to hide I could no longer run
Thank you God, I’m still alive You did not let them win!
Praise the Lord Oh God on High! My Abba, Maker, Friend.
