The Spider and the Devil


The threads of a spiderweb are hard to see
So unwary prey will be trapped easily
And once entangled they cannot get free
And the spider will feast on them with glee
For there is no one to save them

The threads of iniquity are hard to see
So unwary men will be trapped easily
And once entangled they cannot get free
And the devil would feast on them with glee
But there is Someone to save them
