The war continued on full tilt, there seemed no end in site.
Fatigue set in, her body sore, mind on the verge of inability to endure
What had begun this battle unseen?
It was neither here nor there just somehow between
On earth there was no way to view, the damage on either side
because this was no earthly war, its effects were eternity based
the only way to truly win, was to die to self and live in HIM
any other decision, results in you permanently erased
Was this a mean, cruel superior being?
Demanding such an act of surrender, or would it be freeing?
For many it was so difficult to tell until His gentle love pierced their hearts
They fought in the realm unseen so long, not knowing the battle was for them
Until that day they saw so clear, HE pulled them close, He drew them near
That day it all became quite clear
Jesus on a cross, did what no other could
He won the battle, He won the war, He did what no one else would
He took every ounce of sin and shame with Him up on that cross
He stayed up there and slowly died, making sure not one of us was lost
Still a fight continued on, but this one was our choice
Believe He died for me that day and receive that gift of life
Or reject such a beautiful offering of love and continue in the fight alone
Until death instead of home does bring makes me forever gone
My choice was for life that day, accepting His great love
So now though this war goes on, Who goes before me is the best
Because the place that I abide is in His complete rest.
