The Statler Brothers Beat the Devil Lyrics

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 I bet they'll catch you

Jesus said Scriptures 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
