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
