The Battle

The One and only God, so holy,
Creator of the universe;
but evil spirits stir up hatred
and foster strife, make quarrels worse.

They trouble beings God created
to be his friends, take care of earth,
and keep them running from his friendship,
as independent slaves of death.

But then their biggest plan was thwarted
– they’d schemed – God’s Son was crucified,
but when he rose to life they realised
that this had pardon now supplied.

So now those rebels could be welcomed,
and see God’s love and mercy sweet,
return to fellowship so lovely,
despite the evil ones’ deceit.

Those spirits know their days are numbered
for soon the Son will come again,
He’ll send them packing to their prison,
no longer will they trouble men.

Tune: 98 98 eg tunes of ‘O Breath of life, come sweeping through us’ or ‘The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended’
