Track Name: Cold Contempt
COLD CONTEMPT
God, do you feel anger? Remorse? Regret?
When you look down on your creation?
Snakes that resemble men dwell among your children. And they feed. And they breed.

Serpents feeling comfort
There should be cold contempt
Blind to their lies, we embrace them.
We embrace them...

Accustomed to their presence, seeking less of yours, solace in prayer slowly fades.
Broken is Nehushtan, shattered as should be. Deliver us from the evil we condone.

I will send venomous snakes among you. Vipers that cannot be charmed.
And they will bite... they will bite you.
Track Name: From The Dead An Army Risen
FROM THE DEAD AN ARMY RISEN
The hand of the Lord was upon me, and I was carried out in spirit, and He set me in the midst of a valley which was full of bones.

And I passed them round about; there were many so very dry. He asked me, ‘Can these bones live? Upon them now prophesy.”

From the dead an army risen.
The breath of life enter you.
Creating flesh, ye shall live!
And all will know I am the Lord!

I prophesied as commanded. There was a noise, behold they shake. The bones then came together. Skin covered, but no breath they take. “Son of Man,” he commanded me, “Prophesy unto the wind. From the four corners, breath into these slain so that they shall live.”

So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived. They stood upon their feet. It was an exceedingly great army from the dead.
Track Name: Rise
RISE
Rise! A war has been declared! Arise now and choose your side.
Fall! Down on your knees! Our triumph comes from prayer.

Our struggle is not against the flesh and blood, but principalities of darkness.
Rise! A war has been declared! To win we must be sanctified.

Take upon you armor so you may withstand evil; holy armor of God, and having done all to stand, guard within you truth, righteousness and peace. A shield of faith will protect from fiery slings; helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, to attack and defend against that which is unseen.

A call to arms! Rise up and defend. A call to arms goes out to all men.

Arise! A war has been declared.
Arise! Arise and choose your side.
Track Name: Every Knee Shall Bow
EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW
Who are you to judge my service? To our own master will stand and fall. And I will stand, even when I’m weak, for the Lord strengthens me when I call.

Receive the one who is weak and struggles with their faith.
They may not see each day as holy, for giving praise.
No one lives just to himself, and no one dies the same. In life and death we are the Lords, and glorify His name.

To this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, to be the Lord of the dead and the living.

For it is written, as I live: every knee shall bow before me, and every tongue confess, that I am God.

Receive the one who is weak and struggles with their faith.
They may not see each day as holy, for giving praise.
No one lives just to himself, and no one dies the same. In life and death we are the Lords, and glorify His name.

To this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, to be the Lord of the dead and the living.

For it is written, as I live: every knee shall bow before me, and every tongue confess, that I am God.
Track Name: The Shadow of Death
THE SHADOW OF DEATH
In the void of despair, fear grips me without warning. When my faith is weak, it takes hold.
Alone in my thoughts, like death, voices of doubt rise to take hold, leave me cold.

Crying out in desperation
In the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for you are with me
I will fear no evil, for you are with me

There’s darkness closing in
Yet whom shall I fear?
The Lord is my light and salvation!

Alone in my thoughts, like death, voices of doubt rise to take hold, leave me cold.

Crying out in desperation
In the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for you are with me
I will fear no evil, for you are with me
Track Name: Our Final Mourning
