"Shake The Devil Off"

Shake The Devil"

Shake the devil off with the word of God, God makes him shudder in his shoes.
Shake the devil off with the word of God, God makes him shudder in his shoes.

"Shake The Devil Off"

Shake the devil off

When you're having trouble.

and evil thoughts.

Shake the devil off

When he's wrecking havoc in your life.

And keeping up constant strife.

Shake the devil off

When he have you crying real wet tears.

And aggravating your fears.

Shake the devil off

When the devil has stomped you in the ground.

And there is no one esle around.

Shake the devil off

When he feed off your fears.

And get pleasure in your tears.

Shake the devil off

When he makes your life a living hell.

And you get off of your Jesus trail.

Shake the devil off

When he has taken all of your hopes away.

God let us know to have faith because there's another day.

Shake the devil off

When he send us evil, time after times

God let's us know his sun for us, will always shine.

Shake the devil off

Keep shaking him off each and every day.

Until Jesus send his help our way.

Shake the devil off

Cast him to the ground.

Because with the word of God, he will be forever bound.

Shake the devil off and go one more round.

One more round--that what it takes. When you fall, get up again. When you make a mistake, you get a do-over. One more round!
