Beat The Devil Lyrics - The Statler Brothers

Review The Song (0)


In the wilderness Jesus stayed
Forty nights and forty days.
The devil came in all his sin,
Came to tempt even Him.

Said, "I hear tell you're God's Son,
But You get hungry like anyone.
So if You're what they've all said,
Then turn these rocks, Jesus, to bread."

"By the Word of God, man was shown
He can't live by bread alone."
Jesus said, "It's written down."
The devil lost the first round.

The devil took Him to the temple roof,
Said, "Son of God, I want some proof

If You've got angels to see You through,
Then jump down, Jesus, they'll catch You.

Jesus said, "Scriptires record,
Thou shall not tempt the Lord.
Look it up, it's written down."
The devil lost the second round.

"Up on this mountain, far as You see,
All these things I'll give to Thee
If you'll fall down on Your knees,
Jesus Christ, and worship me."

"It's written down," He said again,
"Worship God and only Him."
The devil left and the Angels came.
He beat the devil at his own game.

He beat the devil at his own game.
