This is War

The battle line is already drawn

Soldiers are falling in line

Troops are gathering strength

The army is getting ready 

Every hand is strong

Preparing the­ weapons of warfare


In the thick of the battle

There are no civilians

No fences to sit on

No middle grounds to lie on

There is only life or death

Peace or unrest

Joy or sorrow


This is war,

What side are you on?

And to whom do you belong?

Midnight is coming,

And so is the King of kings

He is the reward of the righteous

And the Saviour of the lost

Join His army and live
