1) Exorcism (Intro)

 

2) The Cross Will Always Prevail

 

I know that I am a sinner

There's no righteousness found in me

On my own I'm doomed to die in the fire

My only hope is Jesus Christ

He alone is my righteousness

Without His Saving Grace I know I am lost

 

Alone on the mountain I was doomed to die

I cried out to Jesus to save my life

He told me to "Rise, soldier of God"

He gave me True Strength to carry on

 

The Cross Will Always Prevail

In this world or in the next you will see

Those who belong to Christ will be set free

The Cross Will Always Prevail

In His Power you had better believe

It is written that we'll have victory!

 

I am suffering every day

When I hear people profane His name

Because I know the pain He went through for me

Christ said "If the World hates you..."

"Remember it has hated me first"

These words I'll keep in my heart forever

 

Some have declared that our defeat is near

Perhaps on earth, it belongs to Satan

Some have declared that we are scattered

But there is a Truth that they can't defeat

 

The Cross Will Always Prevail

In this world or in the next you will see

Those who belong to Christ will be set free

The Cross Will Always Prevail

In His Power you had better believe

It is written that we'll have victory!

 

-------SOLO-------

 

No one is their own savior

Christ alone is your righteousness

Without His Saving Grace you are lost

You may think this unfair

But you must know that we're all sinners

Just being good is not good enough for God

 

Alone in the dark I know you will cry

You will cry out for Jesus to save your life

And just like that He will give you the strength

He'll give you True Strength to carry on

 

The Cross Will Always Prevail

In this world or in the next you will see

Those who belong to Christ will be set free

The Cross Will Always Prevail

In His Power you had better believe

It is written that we'll have victory!

 

3) Christian Battle-Cry

 

Beheaded, imprisoned

Forced to eat out of the trash

Believers in chains

Churches are left in flames

Relocation, torn families

Stolen lives and lost property

No one can hear them cry

They are just left to die

 

The Coptic Church in Egypt has to flee away in fear

Chaldeans in Iraq have to hide from their people

The Pakistani Christians have been known to disappear

No witnesses around them confessing what they hear

 

And if they threaten to take your life

You must tell His story!

And if they threaten to kill your child

You must tell His story!

And if they point their guns and fire

You must tell His story!

And if they're willing to give their life

You must tell their story!

 

If you could see what they'd saw, you'd know the fear that fills them all

If you could see what they'd saw, you'd know the pain that haunts them all

 

Tyrants and atheists

Rule with an iron fist

Islam, the Middle East

Threatens our fragile peace

Pillaging and conscripting

Killing us in their God's name

Forced conversions bringing fear

Hatred from far and near

 

The Christians of Nigeria have to flee away in fear

The Mar Thoma of Orissa have to hide from their people

The Arabian Christians have been known to disappear

No witnesses around them confessing what they hear

 

And if they threaten to take your life

You must tell His story!

And if they threaten to kill your child

You must tell His story!

And if they point their guns and fire

You must tell His story!

And if they're willing to give their life

You must tell their story!

 

If you could see what they'd saw, you'd know the fear that fills them all

If you could see what they'd saw, you'd know the pain that haunts them all

 

-------SOLO-------

 

Legal infanticide

No graves mark where they died

Genocide with no objections

Allowed by United Nations

Starving the many homeless

No compassion shown to them

No prayers allowed in schools

Our leaders are led by fools

 

The Christians of Iran have to flee away in fear

The Christians of East Timor have to hide from their people

Filipino Christians have been known to disappear

No witnesses around them confessing what they hear

 

And if they threaten to take your life

You must tell His story!

And if they threaten to kill your child

You must tell His story!

And if they point their guns and fire

You must tell His story!

And if they're willing to give their life

You must tell their story!

 

If you could see what they'd saw, you'd know the fear that fills them all

If you could see what they'd saw, you'd know the pain that haunts them all

 

4) Under the Scimitar 

 

Wake up! There are Christians being slaughtered in the East!

Women are abused and raped and sold into slavery

They are abducted, tortured and forced to convert to lies

They're stolen from their homes but do we hear their cries?!

 

Tell me!

 

Under the Scimitar is a heavy price to pay

But the Lord paid a steeper cost when He willingly went to the grave

And now I will gladly die so I can boldly say:

I will never deny my God through Jesus Christ I am saved!

 

Under the Scimitar...

We pray...

For Deliverance...

 

-------SOLO-------

 

The Egyptian Christians being martyred in the East

Their churches are in flames and burned by the enemy

They are abducted, tortured and put to the blade by lies

They're stolen from their homes but do we hear their cries?!

 

Tell me!

 

Under the Scimitar is a heavy price to pay

But the Lord paid a steeper cost when He willingly went to the grave

And now I will gladly die so I can boldly say:

I will never deny my God through Jesus Christ I am saved!

Under the Scimitar is a heavy price to pay

But the Lord paid a steeper cost when He willingly went to the grave

And now I will gladly die so I can boldly say:

I will never deny my God through Jesus Christ I am saved!

 

5) Starve the Fires of Moloch

 

Could it be that this madness is really a nightmare?

One where we will wake up and finally see?

Innocent babies are murdered in the womb!

There's no place to mourn them, not even a tomb

Their lives are snuffed out and their bodies discarded

Thrown into a fire with medical waste!

These babies are children not malignant tumors!

They want to know love from their mother's arms! 

 

Your nation will crumble

Your people will perish

Your wicked ways will bury you

So prepare to die

You have worshiped false idols

You've embraced false gods

And you’re serving pure evil

 

Could this land of freedom be finally at its end?

When we go and repeat the sins of Canaan?

What we do is perverse before God above us

But they don't believe Him or the Law He set forth

They live for the moment not thinking or feeling

They conceive a life but they don't think that's fair!

They only want pleasure with no strings or burdens

So they go to clinics to scrape out their wombs!

 

Your nation will crumble

Your people will perish

Your wicked ways will bury you

So prepare to die

You have worshiped false idols

You've embraced false gods

And you’re serving pure evil

 

-------SOLO-------

 

Like those fools of Canaan whose ways God despised

We throw our flesh in the flames of sacrifice

Though we do not throw them in hollowed out statues

We disposed their bodies in bio-hazard urns

You live for the moment not thinking or feeling

You conceive a life but you don't think that's fair!

You only want pleasure with no strings or burdens

So you go to clinics to scrape out your womb!

 

Your nation will crumble

Your people will perish

Your wicked ways will bury you

So prepare to die

You have worshiped false idols

You've embraced false gods

And you’re serving pure evil

 

Starving the Fires of Moloch will save you

From the debt you’re incurring from your sacrifice

The devil is real and he lays in waiting

For you to cave in and give in to your vice

Don't live for the moment not thinking or feeling

And you'll spare a life that needs loving and care

Don't live for your pleasures the cost is too great and

Remember that no one has asked to be born!

 

Your nation won’t crumble

Your people won’t perish

Your wicked ways won’t bury you

So you will live

When you trust in Lord Jesus

You'll reject the false gods

And turn to the light

Your nation won’t crumble

Your people won’t perish

Your wicked ways won’t bury you

So you will live

When you trust in Lord Jesus

You'll reject the false gods

And turn to the light

 

6) Michael the Archangel 

 

When war had broke out in the heavens above us

Michael commanded his angels to stand-up and fight!

 

On that day when the mighty archangels will fly

They will cast out the demons from out of the sky!

On that day when the dragon's angels will rise

Michael will meet them with his blade held so high!

 

Satan is weak and his army is weaker

The fallen angels had all lost their place in the sky!

 

On that day when the mighty archangels will fly

They will cast out the demons from out of the sky!

On that day when the dragon's angels will rise

Michael will meet them with his blade held so high!

 

-Spoken-

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

 

“Now have come the salvation and the power

    and the kingdom of our God,

    and the authority of his Messiah.

For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,

    who accuses them before our God day and night,

    has been hurled down.

They triumphed over him

    by the blood of the Lamb

    and by the word of their testimony;

they did not love their lives so much

    as to shrink from death.

Therefore rejoice, you heavens

    and you who dwell in them!

But woe to the earth and the sea,

    because the devil has gone down to you!

He is filled with fury,

    because he knows that his time is short.”

-Revelation 12:10-12

 

-------SOLO-------

 

The dragon, the devil was hurled down to earth

And with him his angels who all were under God's curse!

 

On that day when the mighty archangels will fly

They will cast out the demons from out of the sky!

On that day when the dragon's angels will rise

Michael will meet them with his blade held so high!

 

7) When We Meet at Armageddon

 

The armies of the Evil One have gathered on the plains

They've come to battle the Lord who's come to end their reign

All the blood of the saints are stained red upon their clothes

And the mark of the beast they bare has stained their very souls

 

When we meet at har-Meggido

The wicked man shall die

The righteous will arise in the sky

And fight you side-by-side

When we meet at har-Meggido

You will kiss my blade

The wicked will be led in chains

They'll fall to Jesus' name

 

The Heavenly Warrior has come to kill the Beast

An Angel in the sun calls the birds to gather for the feast

In vain the Beast prepares to fight this hopeless fight

But he is no match for Heaven and he's banished from the light

 

When we meet at har-Meggido

The wicked man shall die

The righteous will arise in the sky

And fight you side-by-side

When we meet at har-Meggido

You will kiss my blade

The wicked will be led in chains

They'll fall to Jesus' name

 

-------SOLO-------

 

When we meet at har-Meggido

The wicked man shall die

The righteous will arise in the sky

And fight you side-by-side

When we meet at har-Meggido

You will kiss my blade

The wicked will be led in chains

They'll fall to Jesus' name

When we meet at har-Meggido

The wicked man shall die

The righteous will arise in the sky

And fight you side-by-side

When we meet at har-Meggido

You will kiss my blade

The wicked will be led in chains

They'll fall to Jesus' name

 

8) Key to the Abyss

 

A mighty angel’s coming descending from the sky

Holding in his hand

A key to lock them all away, trap them in abyssal fire!

You can scream and curse him it won’t change your fate

You repent too late

Now you will be locked away, burning in a pit of fire!

Demons, can you feel the burning in your throat?

Your thirst is never quenched!

Punishing you night and day, burn you in a pit of fire!

Satan, can you hear Hell calling out your name?

Showing you your fate!

Burn you for a thousand years, burn you in a pit of fire!

 

In the fire!

 

The pain you’ve inflicted on countless of families will finally be avenged

The poor, the sick, the widowed and dying will finally have revenge

 

A mighty angel descends upon your burning home

Showing you the key

With it you’ll be locked away, burning in a pit of fire!

Demons, can you feel the burn of lapping flames?

Reveal to you true pain

Punishing you night and day, burn you in a pit of fire!

Satan, can you hear Hell calling out your name?

Showing you your fate!

Taking all your life away, burn you in a pit of fire!

Satan, can you hear Hell calling out your name?

Showing you your fate!

Burn you for a thousand years, burn you in a pit of fire!

In the fire!

 

The pain you’ve inflicted on countless of families will finally be avenged

The poor, the sick, the widowed and dying will finally have revenge

 

Your pain will never cease…

Your cries are never heard…

Your pain is all too real… and no one cares!

Your judgment’s coming soon

Oh Satan be aware

Your time is coming soon

So be prepared!
