Rise up, O children of God,
Make ready your hands for war.
The King now stands before us.
We join together as loyalists
To build his kingdom here on earth,
And join in heaven's chorus.
Lead on, O Lord, unsheathing our swords.
We arm ourselves with your truth.
Burn in our hearts, enflame our lives.
The battle is now, we’re here to fight.
This age, it seeks to destroy:
Clouds my mind
Robs my heart of your joy.
We pray to you for vision;
Our ears are poised to listen.
Lead us now unto war;
We accept our mission.
