War in the Heavenlies (Rock of Refuge)


War rages in the heavenlies
For soldiers fighting on their knees
In your celestial citadel
We overcome the gates of hell
I go to the mountain of grace
You are my secure hiding place
In your protection I find peace
With my keeper my conflicts cease.

Protected by almighty power
In You I find my strong strong tower
My Defense on the battlefield
I'm armored with your sword and shield
When the enemy assails me
Your fortress will never fail me
Rock of refuge my sure defense
Tower of strength when one repents

Waging war in the heavenlies
O'er rulers and authorities
Bringing down principalities
It's a war against cosmic powers we wage
Defeating spiritual forces of evil
Destroying the works of the devil
The enemies defenses are levelled
As we bring light to the darknesses that rage

You are my hiding place of peace
Where courage and my strength increase
To Your strong fortress I will flee
Your garrison surrounding me.
Your stronghold will protects our hearts
You fortify our souls' ramparts
If I reside within your walls
I will stand sure and never fall

Waging war in the heavenlies
O'er rulers and authorities
Bringing down principalities
It's a war against cosmic powers we wage
Defeating spiritual forces of evil
Destroying the works of the devil
The enemies defenses are levelled
As we bring light to the darknesses that rage
