I'll Still Praise the Lord

I'll Still Praise the Lord

The devil thinks he can steal my praise
By racking my body with pain,
But what he fails to realize
I'll just priase God again.

The devil may think he can steal my joy
By adding chaos to my life,
But he's so slow that he doesn't know
I gave the Lord my pain and strife.

The devil may think he can steal my peace
With worry, fear and debt.
But I hold on to the promises of the Lord
So keep your idle threat.

Theatening that God didn't hear my prayer
That I lost my worth in His eyes,
But I learned early the devil's main tool
Is to fill our head with lies.

Cause I know who I am through Jesus Christ
Snd the power I have within,
The devil really has NO power over me
Unless I CHOOSE to sin.

So be forewarned you author of lies
Doesn't matter what you do to me,
I'll still praise the Lord to the end
You'll NEVER have a hold on me.

Did my best to find something to nitpick, but this is a pretty solid poem that carried itself quite a ways to a satisfying finish. There was much said here and it was said well. The only thing that came to mind was the the last line. I measure all the lines in that stanza. Each line in that stanza have 8 beats, except the last that has 7 beats. I am pretty good about sensing something like that so I counted them. That last line did seem short to me. If you changed the "no hold on me." to "no hold over me", the lines would be equal, only I went a step more and came up with a new version of a possible line, "Satan, you’ll never befriend me" because that line has 8 beats and here I am address the Devil directly and now there is no question who the narrator is talking to.
