The army stands defeated on the battlefield,
But they never really knew how to fight;
They were mighty against enemies they could see,
But not the spirits hidden from their sight.
They were given weapons to wage this war,
But were ignorant of how they are used;
They entered blindly into the enemies hands,
To be humiliated and abused.
But there was a remnant of veteran soldiers,
Lead by the Spirits mighty hand;
Who took the war to the enemies camp,
To defeat him in his own land.
They lead the wounded to shelter,
And taught them by the Spirit how to stand;
Now the enemy has his hands full,
With the army of the Son of Man.
