LIKE LIGHTNING FROM HEAVEN

lyric8

Go out as lambs among the wolves.
Leave your wallets, your money and your shoes.
Every house you enter, bless it.
Say, “Peace be unto you.”

I saw Satan fall as lightning from heaven.
Peace was once his chosen weapon.

The very dust of the town will stick to you.
Wipe it off against them.
Heal the sick in the town.
Say, “The Kingdom of God has come to you.”

I saw Satan fall as lightning from heaven.
Peace was once his chosen weapon.

Tread on snakes and scorpions.
Walk upon the power of the enemy.
He who despises you despises me.
He who despises me despises him who sent me.

I saw Satan fall as lightning from heaven.
Peace was once his chosen weapon.

This is hidden from the prudent and the wise.
While they are practical they lack all eyes.
God revealed this unto children:
Rejoice, your names are written in heaven.

I saw Satan fall as lightning from heaven.
Peace was once his chosen weapon.

Prophets and kings cannot see me.
Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see.
Prophets and kings cannot hear angels,
Though they walk the shore and command the sea.

I saw Satan fall as lightning from heaven.
Peace was once his chosen weapon.

A lawyer cross-examined me:
“I want eternal life. What should I do?”
Love the Lord with all your heart, all your soul.
Love your neighbor as you love you.

I saw Satan fall as lightning from heaven.
Peace was once his chosen weapon.
