Staring into the pit, no end in sight,
Falling deeper into fear, no break of light.
Pressure rising and rising, no mind should ever know,
Darkness screaming and screaming, no safe place to go.
Wicked angels appearing like a plague of locusts,
Evil strongholds choking all peace and focus.
Unforgiveness stirring from yester years,
Bitter heart aching from painful tears.
"Look up! Look up!" the heavens cry out,
"No way out! No way out!" the demons shout.
Fear the truth or fear the lie,
The difference is to live or die.
The Lord rebuke you satan,
A child of God is never forsaken.
Forever written for His glory,
The truth of God completes the story.
The Lord is faithful, a mighty strong tower,
In His name, there is no greater power.
"Jesus! Jesus!" The darkness finally shatters,
"Truly! Truly!" His perfect love is all that really matters.
