The Scars of War

We’ve fought the battle long and hard

There seems no end in sight

As the sun rises each morning

Our souls survive the night

How long, how long ,Oh Lord

Must Your people endure this war

As we wait for You Oh Lord

To greet us at heavens shore

Some days the hosts of hell

Press on every side

As we batter the gates of glory

That they would open wide

We see the wounded all around

Their souls in need of rest

Many fought the good fight

They have stood the mammoth test

Lord, avenge Your holy Name

As we lift Your banner high

We sing Your song of victory

And we sound our battle cry

“It is finished, it is finished”

Still thunders from the Cross

What Satan thought to gain

Became his greatest loss

Your precious blood You shed

Still cries out from the ground

The Voice of it so mighty

All heaven hears the sound

Could You, would you, speak again?

Rolling, peals of thunder, lightning in the sky

We would lift our eyes to heaven

Knowing You draw nigh

Please lift our hands that hang down

Strengthen our weak knees

As we follow on to glory

For You hold heavens' keys
