Battle Cry


Kristine Cucinotta Murphy

Keep your word, do or die
Let me hear your Battle Cry

Dig deep or break to pieces
But, our prayer never ceases

Our heart and flesh may fail
Yet, truth and love will always prevail

We scream victory before it’s won
Fall in emotional torment until it is done

Frustration and anger consume the meek
Yet, you carry us when we are weak

Everything working for good, it will come to pass
Your mercy and understanding no one else has

We are up and then we are down
Turn our tears into battle cries, all so profound

Let our roar be greater than that lurking lion
Scoop us up on eagle’s wings when we feel like dying

Set us up on the mountain top
Command all weapons formed against us to stop

Cover our ears from every doubt and enemy’s lie
Keep our word, do or die

Dust off our knees, back up for another try
Let me hear your Battle Cry

Burn your fire in our hearts again
Renew our minds and cleanse our hearts of sin

Restore to us what the enemy stole
Keep us in your covenant, make us whole

Our hope, our strength, our comfort
The day of harvest is near, the wheat and tares, you will sort

Keep us in all humility
Give us your eyes to see

To persevere, your army
Let a battle cry start with me

Pressed down, shaken together, runneth over
Faith moving mountains like a bulldozer

With love going before us, a great force
Of your Holy Spirit, our mighty source

Keep our word, do or die
Let others hear my Battle Cry

Numbers 24:8
God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.

Psalm 92:10
But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
