(Lyrics) Dan Guards Naphtali
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©

There once was a lawyer who claimed to tell the truth
He would try all his cases in temples and booths
Where he would charge and accuse, and boastfully he would proclaim
The reasons you should feel guilty, outcast and ashamed

He would do everything to get you to agree
To slip it right past you quite delicately
So that before you knew what was happening to you
He would have you admitting to something you never did do

He would talk and he’d mock and he’d wear a disguise
A mask called the truth worn to cover his lies
He’d swindle and rob and weave webs to catch
The meek and the innocent Lambs in his net

He would use God’s given grace as a license to kill
Accusing Moses of murder, he would murder him still
Immorally raping Jerusalem God’s bride
He would serve Satan and to the Holy Spirit he would lie

He said there is no reason you should contend for your faith
That he was the lord and there was no reason to wait
He would lay his hands on you, and he would ask for your will
So he could possess your soul and your lands, and his evil appetite fill

The Gazelles and the Lambs have to be protected from him
The bread crumb sinners and those without sin
You, too, can be saved by God’s given grace
Make your pathway salvation so that you can contend for your faith

Many of the Gospel References for “Dan Guards Naphtali” are the same as my songs “Observers and Obeying the Law”, “Lord Jesus Overthrows the Devil”, “Lucifer Has No Inheritance” and “Jesus Christ Clear To Peter” -see also my notes and sketches on the metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel and the lyrics and references that are included in all my song posts.
(Please note also that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9.
