They came disguised as angels to one He had forgave 
To make him fall unfaithful and drag him to the grave 
He did not drink the water in Hell the night before 
Would not deny the Father and bravely fought that war 
Had seen the fiery ocean and kissed the lame man’s feet 
Held tight the weeping woman and watched the demons eat 
A man with pitch-black eyes said, “they love the world they’re in.” 
“They believe the ancient lie and you will never win.” 
He then became a cobra with two heads in the sand 
“Forsake the name Jehovah or never leave my land.” 
With God’s Word the serpent fell he’s said to say, “Not here.” 
With the Lord departed Hell without defeat or fear. 
Safely in the living world believing all was won 
Shared this with a kindred soul but Satan was not done 
Something strong was drawing near sons sleeping in their beds 
“If I fight this battle here by morning I’ll be dead.” 
When all was calm they came back pretending to be friends 
Offered gifting for attack to be God’s champion 
“Lay on back and let us work. We will anoint you now…” 
“Do not fear, it will not hurt, before you we all bow.” 
It was pleasure uncompared, sensations, oh so great! 
Demons had him in their snare and now it was too late. 
Frantically, he tried to stand they pulled him toward the ground 
Pulled them off with their bare hands but could not keep them down 
Fervent prayers in Jesus’ name to bind their hands and feet 
Laughing, dragging, their own chains they pawed defenseless meat 
Answered prayer, the Lord was there He said, “No drop of blood” 
“Anything but death is fair, He’ll praise me, drought or flood” 
Morning would be coming soon then surely they’d be gone 
Struggling in the light of moon he longed to see the dawn 
Then there was no fight inside I said, “Your will be done.” 
Closed my eyes as if to hide I could no longer run 

Thank you God, I’m still alive You did not let them win! 
Praise the Lord Oh God on High! My Abba, Maker, Friend.

Without Regret

If only I had seen you there and felt you by my side
Through the anguish and despair, heard you weeping as I cried.
Suppose if I had known that all was in your hands
I never would have grown and worked against your plans.
While stumbling through the desert I forgot about the rain,
Still you took the loss and hurt and used it for my gain.
You forge my strength in weakness and I’m sharpened by your word
You walk with me in sickness, grant me love I don’t deserve.
Set my feet on spacious ground, kept the enemy at bay
In you, oh Lord, true love Iove I’ve found, I rejoice and praise your name.
I know this war’s not over, lions stalking at the gate
I will keep marching forward, trusting Jesus with my fate.
I put down the ways of man, count me among your forces.
Lift me up with your great hand so I can race with horses.
Storms will come, the sun will set, my sword may not grow cold
Let me die without regret that I value more than gold.
In this world your will be done, I marvel at your glory.
In the end we will be one and that will be our story.

The Other

There is a lovely place 
on the other side of time
Where boundless love and grace
 forever intertwine.
Not pain nor loss or fear,
 no creature from the dark
Will ever enter here, 
they cannot pierce your heart.
Held safely in God’s hands, 
all strife will fade away
Called from exiled lands 
on the promise that He made.
The door is now flung open
 and never will it close
For all who have been broken
 and won’t deny her rose.
Father I am sinful
 yet you love me as your own
I stand poor and faithful,
 come down and take me home.
