Hold fast and faint not- ever claim
The truth of those who walk by faith.
When hope has turned to something more
This life won’t hold me as before
Reclaim that veil which has been draped
Upon these eyes which walk by faith
And purify what still remains
Before their cause is lost and vain.
The bane of my existence lies
In dreams that curse with piercing eyes
But lift the light to guide the way
To all those lives who walk by faith
And I will see the vanity
Of dreams that shine but broken be.
Shattered, broken, gleaming light
Lifting dawn and breaking night!
To those recipients in line
Who walk by faith and not by sight
Hold fast, and yet hold faster till
The wrath of fury’s cup is filled!
Take heart, lift up those feeble hands
Shout out your voice to this dry land!
Remember why you are the called
Do not rebel lest then you fall!
Withdraw your gaze from Satan’s game
Lift up and fight! Fight in God’s name!
Vengeance! Vengeance! For those lost!
Those who’ll pay the final cost!
Bloodied from a billion blows
But sullied not by mortal foes!
Cry havoc! Havoc our bleeding cry
Twisted are truths we can’t deny!
Oh you who wander without aim
Join our cause and fight this plague
Which steals inside the souls of men
And buries them through endless sin.
Oh you who care not for your life
Look to the cross and then ask why!
Life and love were sacrificed
And yet you wish to take your life.
Mortal man and demon same
Bow the knee and yield in shame
Before the might of who remains
after the earth’s engulfed in flames.
Awaken me from this dark night
Take my hand and lead my flight
Towards that peaceful distant shore
Where those who’ve battled long before
Now sit in rest and watch over
The rest who must still fight this war-
But not before I’ve filled my days
As one who fights and lives by faith.
