Subject: Lyr Add: SATAN AND THE SAINT (Louvin Brothers)
I got most of the words, anyway, by listening to YouTube:

As sung by the Louvin Brothers

"I have the world to offer you."
Yes, you have the world to hold
Till the day when God declares
Time on earth shall be no more.
Fire and brimstone shall rain down enveloped(?) like the snow.
What will you have to offer then to a dying soul?

"But think of all you're giving up."
I'm giving up the chance to die
And spend eternity in Hell
Burning in a lake of fire,
I thank God who's made a way that I might escape.
By the living grace of God, I shall see his face,

"You don't sin; you're good enough."
There's not a just man upon earth
That doeth good and sinneth not.
All we like sheep have gone astray.
We have turned ev'ry one to his own way,
And the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

"But ...(?) will be too dull for you."
Ev'rything you offered me
Don't mean nothin' to my heart.
Far from sin, I've been set free.
Praise the lord; I'm going home, ever to rejoice.
Take the world and get behind.
I have found a peace of mind.
Everlasting joy is mine.
Jesus is my joy.
