p>War is a holy thing.
It comes from God.
He leads the unblemished lambs
to the altar of Christ's blood
and buries silver daggers in their hearts.

Everywhere dead men meet on street corners
and sing hosannas to this God
and his holy war.
Angels rejoice in Heaven.
For it is war that comes from God
and it is a holy thing.

The time for tithing has come.
The children of God must give silver and souls,
for war is a holy thing.
The scythe moves through the land;
the wheat has been placed in shocks;
the time for harvest has come.

Vanquish the infidels,
the heathen hordes of unbelievers.
Return them to the clay;
for the wrath of God is upon them,
and men of peace you may despise,
for war is a holy thing.

Listen to the singers of songs,
and do not be swayed by the peacemakers,
for they are not of the children of God.
Cover your ears and look away.
Shake their dust from your feet.
They are full of lies and seduction
leading you from the path of righteousness.

Sing hosannas loud into the night,
giving strength to the faltering.
Show them the way with lighted torches,
as stars guide men in heaven.
And be not afraid.
For God is love,
and war is a holy thing.
