A Call to Arms

27 Nov

Discovered this fantastic song just today.  In the realm of ‘masculine’ worship music, a song such as this, even though it isn’t ‘technically’ a worship song, it’s precisely to worship that my heart goes when hearing it.  A lyric or two is a little weird, but men, where does your heart go when you read these words?

This is a call to arms,

gather soldiers

Time to go to war

This is a battle song,

brothers and sisters

Time to go to war

Did you ever believe?

Were you ever a dreamer?

Ever imagine heart open and free?

Did you ever deny?

Were you ever a traitor?

Ever in love with your blood lust and need?

This is a call to arms,

gather soldiers

Time to go to war

This is a battle song,

brothers and sisters

Time to go to war

Ever want to be free?

Do you even remember?

Want to ride out and stand with me?

Ever want to just stop?

Do you want to surrender?

Or fight for victory?

Here we are at the start

I can feel the beating of our hearts

Here we are at the start

Darkness falls,

here comes the rain

To wash away the past and our names

Darkness falls,

here comes the rain

To end it all, the blood and the game

Far, far away

in a land that time can’t change

Long, long ago in a place of hearts and ghosts

Far, far away in a land that time can’t change

Long, long ago in a place of hearts and ghosts

This is a call to arms,

gather soliders

Time to go to war (Far, far away…)

This is a battle song, brothers and sisters

Time to go to war (Long, long ago…)

This is a call to arms,

gather soliders

Time to go to war (Far, far away…)

This is a battle song, brothers and sisters

Time to go to war

This is a call to arms, we own the night

This is a battle song, we own the night

 

This is what our masculine hearts yearn for-to be called forth into something larger than ourselves, to be commanded to stand, and to know, KNOW in our deepest heart, that we are dangerous, and a threat to evil.  Well, men…we are.  We are of that glorious stock, and this is a call to arms, brothers…time to go to war.  To fight for those who long for freedom.  To stand next to our brothers on the front lines, with our Captain on a white horse, leading us into battle against the Kingdom of Darkness, bringing Light and Life into those dark prisons, setting captives free.  Our sons can rise into their own manhood with a crystal clear example to follow, if only we would answer this Call to Arms.  Will you ride?
