Battle Cry

Oh the thirst of my heart,
Reaches endless halls,
What I have done,
Flies like a dart.
Strength that I need, come.

Where lies the power?
What does my heart call for?
Hungry my soul,
But the clouds dire.
Strength that I need, come.

How can I battle,
The forces that attack,
Dark as the wings of the storm,
Fiercer than the strongest beast,
My walls to sack?

To fight I need weapons strong.
Multitudes from on high.
A bastion, a song,
The battle cry.
Strength that I need, come.

Who do I have?
Numbers to count,
Unity to bind,
Gathered with my brother,
It fights with more than I can find.
But I need more.

Myriad forces I cannot see,
My only dart becomes more,
Arrows fly,
The enemy falls.
Not with my own strength,
But God’s.
My community.
Strength that I need has come.
