Lyrics[edit]

 Satan is real, working in spirit
 You can see him and hear him in this world every day
 Satan is real, working with power
 He can tempt you and lead you astray
 
 I attended service at a little church
 In the country not long ago
 A prayer was led by an old country preacher
 Who then raised his hands as everyone stood and sang
 "My God is real"
 A warm breeze through the open windows
 Brought in the smell of new mown hay in a nearby field
 And the singing of birds could be heard
 In the moment of silence
 As the preacher opened the bible to read
 And then a little old man stood up, bent with age
 His hair thin and white
 And said, "Preacher, tell them that satan is real too"
 You can hear him in songs that give praise to idols
 And sinful things of this world
 You can see him in the destruction of homes torn apart
 I know that satan is real
 For once I had a happy home
 I was loved and respected by my family
 I was looked upon as a leader in my community
 And then Satan came into my life
 I grew selfish and un-neighborly
 My friends turned against me
 And finally, my home was broken apart
 My children took their paths into a world of sin
 Yes preacher, it's sweet to know that God is real
 And know that in Him all things are possible
 And we know that Heaven is a real place
 Where joy shall never end
 But sinner friend, if you're here today
 Satan is real too
 And hell is a real place
 A place of everlasting punishment
 
 Satan is real, working in spirit
 You can see him and hear him in this world every day
 Satan is real, working with power
 He can tempt you and lead you astray
