lyrics

We saddled up the horses before the morning light
and headed out to battle amid the black of night.
We sharpened up the axes and stormed the village gates.
We set fire to the town for the sake of Jesus’ name.

Singing, “Oh …
Keep us safe in the name of the Lord.”

We set out for the Holy Land the year of 99
to punish Jew and Muslim for the Christ they had denied.
Yeah, they suffered for the unbelief found within their hearts,
and we drove them from Jerusalem with a Bible and a cross.

Singing, “Oh …
Keep us safe in the name of the Lord.”

We sang, “Oh …
Keep us safe in the name of the Lord.”

Yeah, I stormed the synagogue and drove the children out.
I set fire to that temple and burned it to the ground.
I took their holy book, convinced that I was right,
until I heard those children crying through the night.

Singing, “Oh …
Keep us safe in the name of the Lord.”

And they sang, “Oh …
Keep us safe in the name of the Lord.
Keep us safe in the name of the Lord.
Keep us safe in the name of the Lord.”
