We Can Stray or Stay

By Walt Perryman

When I do not keep God in my life, like I should,
It doesnít take long for bad to replace the good.

Satan is always trying to replace God in my soul,
And for me to live my life in sin, is Satanís goal.

But, when I attend church and read the Bible every day,
And I stay focused on God, Satan is the one that will stray.

When I start straying away from God like I sometimes do,
It becomes easier and easier to sin like Satan wants me to.

There is no compromising, is what I am trying to say,
And folks, God is my reason that Iím going to church today.
