Oh, the devil loves Halloween,
giving out treats with his tricks
and he doesn't care one lick
what tender heart he pricks.
His bag is deep with trickery,
as are his sugar coated lies
he makes himself look yummy
in all his young victim's eyes.
He will do just about anything,
to con and hoodwink you
and he doesn't care one bit
about the harm, he plans to do.
Tis the season he is honored,
and he is laughing just like hell
for we have bought into the sack
of the sweet evil, he has to sell.
We dress our kids in costumes,
and make them look little goblins
then take them to haunted houses
with scary ghosts in bloody coffins.
They bob around for red apples,
and we say it's just for fun
but, I remember what happened
when Eve took a bite out of one.
As Christians we must not let,
the wicked one into our house
we have to put an end to his holiday
and his message we must douse.
So this year when you open the door,
to a child asking for a trick or a treat
give them a Gospel tract instead
then Jesus they will meet!
