Martyrs

The people are gathered, the sermon may begin
Everyone is happy, they all shall celebrate the King
Storming through the door military men of war
Turning the guns towards the pastor, forcing him to crawl
They tighten the rope around his neck making a public example
'This will be your destiny if you don't reject your faith!'
They let him hang in front of the congregation, for everyone to see
'This will be your destiny if you don't give up your faith!'
HOW CAN I DENY MY CALL
LET THIS BE HEARD FROM WALL TO WALL
UNTIL I TAKE MY LAST BREATH
I WILL NEVER REJECT MY FAITH
As the pastor is dropping dead, one by one the people proclaim:
'For to me, to live is Christ and die is gain'
"...then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death
and you will be hated by all nations because of me. Due to the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. But he who stands firm to the end will be saved..."
They remove the rope from his neck after being made a public example
'This will be you destiny if you don't reject your faith!'
HOW CAN I DENY MY CALL
LET THIS BE HEARD FROM WALL TO WALL
UNTIL I TAKE MY LAST BREATH
I WILL NEVER REJECT MY FAITH
As the military triumphly smile
The souls to the heavens ascend
And given by Jesus to each of them
The eternal crown of righteousness
