I can’t breathe I can’t see
The darkness, the smoke, the confusion
The battle violently rages
There is no light and hope has fled
I have no place left to hide
No safe dwelling, no rest, no relief
Causing fear to overtake any belief
That I’ve safely guarded in my soul
That You will come for me, You will save me
The dragon has condensed his powers
Waging a demonic barrage to steal souls
He has ordered his minions out in great numbers
I am cornered with only my sword and my shield
And my heart faints as his poison touches my forehead
And I fall with my inner most thought
You will come…You will save
His blackness has surrounded me
And completely voided all thought other than of him
So that the power of my hope is sorely diminished
And my eyes are blind and my heart falters
My breath is ragged as tears fall silently
Because I cannot contain them
And I cannot contain the fear
His fear that stands face to face against me
His fear that walks and rules this world
His fear that has turned from pursuing many
To sifting out the dedicated warriors
For hand to hand combat
The earthly warriors!
The greatest prize on the war field ~ in all of earth
Fought over by both heaven and hell
Those that have heard Your call on their hearts
Those that have followed in Your footsteps
Those that have laid everything of earthly value down at Your feet
For the sake of keeping heaven’s door open from earth to heaven
These are the souls Darkness wants as his own
And as such, the assault is the fiercest on these
And yet, and yet You have not come…
And so the devastation of souls is great
Greater than ever in Terra’s final swing around eternity
For many have relinquished their soul to iniquity
And Evil reaps a bountiful harvest
Leaving the war field littered with lifeless forms
With no sign of victory to be seen from earthly eyes
That You have come as help from the Sanctuary
In this gross darkness
When all seems lost
The thought floats across my mind
To give in…just give up waiting for Your return
Oh! Such a sorrowful thought!
For I cannot even consider
Giving up the seed of Hope you planted deep within me
And then I wonder, how can this Hope flourish?
My mind is devastated, my body ravaged
But my heart turns to me and speaks Your words:
You will go on!
You will persevere!
You will reach the gate!
And in the corner of my imprisoned mind
I am amazed at this thought process
That restores balance and strength for one more day
Knowing I will faithfully wait for You…
And You will come! This I know!
Forever is a long time
But I have lived it in my heart
Your bond with and in me
From the very beginning to the never ending
Your Promise as the Original Warrior
Stamped with Your blood and sealed
A promise I will not let go of
Until you come….
Grant Mercy, I pray!
