A stunning solo, Kardinal has taken lessons from Daniel and the Lion’s den, the fiery furnace, and David and Goliath and rolled them into a powerful message to “Rise in the strength of the Spirit” and “resist the enemy”. Lyrics by Carolyn Kardinal. Copyright 2008.

Music and Lyrics by C. Kardinal

In dens where roaring lions shred peace and harmony
With false accusations like the ancient phraisees,
In the midst of condemnation, Christ defeats the guilty plea.
He silences the accuser and gives you victory.

Rise in the strength of the spirit. Resist the enemy.
Christ comes now as in ancient days to set the captives free.
Arise, shine, dear child of God. Lift up your eyes to see
His power and glory as He gives you victory.
If your faith is tried by fire and thought, deceived by pain,
If you’re cast into the furnace when you won’t kneel to evil’s claim,
Turn to Him, you’re not alone, H walks with you today,
Even though you can see no way out, He always shows the way.

Trust in Him, be not afraid, the battle is not your fight.
Set yourself and witness the glory of His might!
When Goliath comes against you in the war of rage and hate,
Our loving God protects you and seals the accuser’s fate.
You can not be a target if He is at your side.
Just one smooth stone of truth kill the giant lie.
