Chase the Devil Away
Chase away the devil
When he comes into your path,
He is just something evil
And you will have the last laugh.
His tricks aren’t any surprise
Roaring like a hungry lion
Threatening peoples lives
Chase away the devil if you can.
Think of him as proud Satan
Trying to be friend with incantation,
Don’t close your eyes to his temptation
See the real picture in regeneration.
Justice is coming and he doesn’t expect it,
Because he has crossed the line
He will be bound in the bottomless pit
Put away from society for a long time.
Gods law is strong It will stand when he falls,
Into the prison of his own captivity,
You can say a prayer and close your eyes,
He’ll not bother you again throughout eternity.
