Contend

Your presence came
I saw your face take shape
Your eyes as fierce as flame

Such a furious face
Is this my saving the grace?
Cause this savior ain’t the same

You’ve seen me bend and break
Yet every past mistake
Your healing hands have saved

You won’t erase my pain
You recreate again
And now I hear you say…

“Son close your eyes
Open your mind,
And live by your heart.
I called you to fight
To ignite the fire
That shines out the dark.

Stand and contend
I command you to fend and,
Never bend or surrender
To the enemy’s plan.

Fight to bring light
To a world that’s dying inside
Ignite the fire that shines inside
Never compromise!”

Your essence comes
I your see your plans take shape
Amazing as your Grace

The wisdom of the stars
Has risen in this heart
And I’m forever changed

The warrior rises still!
These hands that bent your will
Now strike the serpent’s heel!

I rise to take the stand
A child-like faith in hand
But with the strength of a man

“Son close your eyes
Open your mind,
And live by your heart.
I called you to fight
To ignite the fire
That shines out the dark.

Stand and contend
I command you to fend and,
Never bend or surrender
To the enemy’s plan.

Fight to bring light
To a world that’s dying inside
Ignite the fire that shines inside
Never compromise!”
