Track Name: In the Midst of Persecution
Music: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics: Mikaela Akrenius

I call on you, oh God,
For you will answer me
Give ear to me and hear my prayer
Keep me as the apple of your eye
Hide me in the shadow of your wings

From the wicked who assail me
From my mortal enemies who surround me
They close up their callous hearts
And their mouth speaks with arrogance

They are like a lion hungry for prey
Like a great lion crouching in cover

Their throats are open graves
Their tongues practise deceit
The poison of vipers is on their lips
Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness

Give me a sign of your goodness
That my enemies may see it and be put to shame
Let them be caught in their pride
For the curses and lies they utter

The way of peace they do not know
There is no fear of God before their eyes
O Lord, by your hand save me from such men
Of this world whose reward is in this life

They are like a lion hungry for prey
Like a great lion crouching in cover

Their throats are open graves
Their tongues practise deceit
The poison of vipers is on their lips
Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness

But I - in righteousness I shall see your face
When I awake, I shall be satisfied with seeing your likeness

Their throats are open graves
Their tongues practise deceit
The poison of vipers is on their lips
Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness
Track Name: Circus of Flesh
Music: Eero Tertsunen & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics: Eero Tertsunen

Souls caught in awe, to watch the splendeour of the world
Even the chosen fall before the glory of Babylon
The demand of the eye and the lust of the flesh
All will be found in the path of temptations

Souls wandering in slavery, running after vanity
Enslaved to sins and pleasures, in the circus of flesh

Blindfolded eyes unable to see behind reality
Bound in the needs of the material sanctuary
Both rich and poor bow before the golden image
Too numb to hear the call to redemption

Souls wandering in slavery, running after vanity
Enslaved to sins and pleasures, in the circus of flesh

Without questioning following the master plan
No will to escape the carnival
Beneath the splendeour awaits the rotting grave
The cup of demons, slaughter of your soul

The circus of flesh
All enjoyment available
Experience the pleasure
Join into depravity

The circus of flesh
All hell is awaiting
For your sudden arrival
Experience - the awake in Hell
Track Name: Demons´ Quest
Music: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics: Eero Tertsunen

From the depths of the most dark
Rising abominations leave their mark
To the fragile human mind
Misguided like an innocent child

In ignorance they walk in darkness
Like animals destined to mindlessness
Mocking ancients about what they knew
Still unaware of the ones who control

Blinded by what can't be known
To basic instincts their lives are thrown
Trusting in the hollow shells of flesh
Blindly following the demons' quest
To Hell

Provoking the truth by their acts
Declaring primitive lies as facts
Their generation under submission
Slaves to demonic manipulation

In the shadows lurk their inmost fears
Evil oppression bringing out the tears
Some wake to see beyond the illusion
Condemned in schizophrenic delusion

Blinded by what can't be known
To basic instincts their lives are thrown
Trusting in the hollow shells of flesh
Blindly following the demons' quest

Behind the darkness there is a call
If you do not answer you will fall
Caught in the trap for eternity
Unless you seek salvation from the Trinity

Son of God - Salvation
Escape - Deception
Open my eyes - To see
Jesus Christ - Set me free

Blinded by what can't be known
To basic instincts their lives are thrown
Trusting in the hollow shells of flesh
Blindly following the demons' quest
To Hell
Track Name: Son of God
Music: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics: Mikaela Akrenius & Eero Tertsunen

On the cross a human shape lost its form, blood and mockers' laughter
Pain and blood-thirsty viewers, bruises and evil words
An innocent man dying slowly and painfully as people watch and despise
Betrayed by a friend, He is left to die

The Son of God
Who has come to take the sins of the world
He was crucified
For all our sins and iniquities, like a lamb led to be slaughtered

He was in the world, and the world was made by Him,
And the world knew Him not

Persecuted and defamed like a malefactor
Cursed for the goodness of His acts
Finally sentenced to the uttermost death
No one knew what this man was intented to do

The Son of God
Who has come to take the sins of the world
He was crucified
For all our sins and iniquities, like a lamb led to be slaughtered
Left to die
That we may gain eternal life
Abandoned
A man of sorrows and suffering, rejected by all

He was in the world, and the world was made by Him,
And the world knew Him not
