Devil Went Down To Jordan


The devil went down to the Jordan

He was lookin' for a show to steal

He was in a bind 'cause Jesus came to find

The people willing to make it real

And he came upon the Son of Man

Saw Him in the desert and prayin' to God

Then the devil jumped upon the chance to tempt Him

Said, "Boy, let me tell ya, it's hot!"

"I guess you wouldn't show it, but I can tell you're cravin' food

"And kid I'm scared this desert air might get the best of you

"Now you ain't been eatin' your vittles boy

"But now, your dinner is due

"So if you're really God's son, then turn these stones

To bread and I'll butter it for you."

The Lord said, "I am hungry, but that would be a sin

"Cause it ain't by bread man's gonna be fed

"But by the Word God's given him."

John the Baptist washed the Lord and there's where it all starts

Cause Jesus left the Jordan and the devil hit Him hard

And if He wins we get to walk on Heaven's streets of gold

But if He sins the devil gets your soul

The devil took Him up in space and said, "Why don't You throw

"Yourself off of this temple top as I watch You from below

"Cause I'm sure You know that God will send

"All His angels to assist

"And man would believe that You are Him

"If the saw you did somethin' like this"

When the devil finished, Jesus said

"Well, you're temptin' God, old son

"And it's written down in that book right there

"That thing should never be done"

Shout from the mountain what God's done

The devil ain't a match for the rising Son

You can never tempt God, did you not know

Man, he doesn't live by bread alone

The devil finallly said, "Jesus, if You'll just worship me

"Then I'll give you gold that glitters

"Every crown, and
