05 Battle for the eternal destiny of Humankind
V - The battle enters the realms of death
This was not to be the end of Jesus, the Lord.
The battle was not to be fought by human sword.
Into Satan's territory the fight was to take place
to determine the eternal destiny of the human race.
The greatest battle this world has ever known
was fought by You, Lord, as You stood alone.
Heavens hosts looked on with baited breath
as You took the fight into the realms of death.
Into that bottomless Abyss You began Your descent.
Deeper into the very depths of death You went
Alone You stood in Satan's dark territory there
as hells creatures approach they roar and glare.
