Track Name: In Hell
Music by: Eero Tertsunen & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Eero Tertsunen, Mikaela Akrenius, Barry Halldan, & Voitto Rintala

Liberate tuteme ex infernis


Born to this world of pride and deceit
Dropped out of life, no place to fit
Pushed around and trampled on the ground
Left aside, choosing to hide

Being alone, trapped in silence
Living in shame, is everything in vain?
Do I want to live?
Do I want to die?
What will happen then? Is it worth to try?

The gates of Hell are wide open
Enter into suffocating darkness
The unseen horrors in the furnace of fire
Burning torment, rotting in pain

In Hell it's too late to realize
That it is worse than this life
No release by suicide
Without forgiveness and sacrifice
We are all condemned to burn in fire

Cold, corrupted world filled with lies and despise
Busy, wasted lives and hollow, empty eyes
Searching for success, working night and day
Finally drained empty and thrown away

Being alone, trapped in silence
Living in shame, is everything in vain?
Do I want to live?
Do I want to die?
What will happen then? Is it worth to try?

There is only One who can save you from this hell
The Son of God who shed His blood for our sins
The ultimate sacrifice to forgive our wrongings
And whoever calls His name will be saved

The gates of Hell are wide open
Enter into suffocating darkness
The unseen horrors in the furnace of fire
Burning torment, rotting in pain

In Hell it's too late to realize
That it is worse than this life
No release by suicide
Without forgiveness and sacrifice
We are all condemned to burn in fire

Jesus save me!
Track Name: Corrosion of Emotions
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Jani Stefanovic

Empty hollow minds
Weary fragile souls

What is the meaning of your life
You're walking endless miles
Broken lies, fallen skies
Sorrow deep within your mind

Why keep digging down deep into the pain
Walking among the living dead
Dwelling in the supremacy of sorrow
Corrosion of emotions
No escape when redemption is lost
Why decline eternal life
Repent
Or you'll find yourself swimming in the Lake of Fire

Worthy is the Lamb seated on the throne
His blood has covered our sins

For God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
Whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life

Why keep digging down deep into the pain
Walking among the living dead
Dwelling in the supremacy of sorrow
Corrosion of emotions
No escape when redemption is lost
Why decline eternal life
Repent
Or you'll find yourself swimming in the Lake of Fire

You raise your head up to the skies
Change your ways like the shifting tides
Have you lost the sense of time
Completely blind to see the signs
Heaven and earth will pass away
But His Word will endure
There will be signs in the sun and the moon
Distress of nations with perplexity

Your pain can be healed in His name
Your shame taken away
'Cause our Lord has conquered the grave
By His grace we are saved

John 3:16, Luke 21:25,33
Track Name: Scenes of a Tragedy
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Jani Stefanovic

The truth is not so hard to find
Open your eyes and you'll realize
The fool has said in his heart
Chaos around, there is no god

They have chosen to suffer
To believe in nothing
Deeper and deeper the wounds they cut
Scenes of a tragedy

Ignorance is walking by their side
Broken promises all the time
Nations standing in confusion
Without answers or conclusion
Only the fool has turned aside
Fighting the truth burning their flesh
Less they hear less they believe
Blind leading the blind

Dead eyes see no future
The simple truth they fear
Hollow cold despair, shattered realities
Betrayal is at hand, vanishing into the void

They have chosen to suffer
To believe in nothing
Deeper and deeper the wounds they cut
Scenes of a tragedy

Ignorance is walking by their side
Broken promises all the time
Nations standing in confusion
Without answers or conclusion
Only the fool has turned aside
Fighting the truth burning their flesh
Less they hear less they believe
Blind leading the blind

Blindfolded points of view
Why don't you accept the truth
Wake up, wake up

Why walk in the deepest pit
When you can ask for his graceful hand
Jesus.. Jesus

Ask for His hand
Ask for salvation
And you´ll be saved

Ignorance is walking by their side
Broken promises all the time
Nations standing in confusion
Without answers or conclusion
Only the fool has turned aside
Fighting the truth burning their flesh
Less they hear less they believe
Blind leading the blind
Track Name: Through Darkness
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Jani Stefanovic

I see darkness around me
Uninvited spreading its fear
Burn their eyes burn their souls
Walk them through the fire

We can make a difference
By choosing right from wrong
- Creator of Life
Break the chains and let our souls dwell in the light

The vermins among us
Infesting what once was pure
Evil entwining
Our spirits so vague
The frustration
Of this cynical world
Hatred is born love is torn
But in the end we will prevail

Beware of your judgemental thoughts
Denial of truth, thirst for blood
The conviction is yet to come
The hourglass counting its time

We can make a difference
By choosing right from wrong
- Creator of Life
Break the chains and let our souls dwell in the light

The vermins among us
Infesting what once was pure
Evil entwining
Our spirits so vague
The frustration
Of this cynical world
Hatred is born love is torn
but in the end we will prevail

They fooled themselves trusting an illusion
That solid path will take them nowhere

We can make a difference
By choosing right from wrong
- Creator of Life
Break the chains and let our souls dwell in the light

The vermins among us
Infesting what once was pure
Evil entwining
Our spirits so vague
The frustration
Of this cynical world
Hatred is born love is torn
but in the end we will prevail
Track Name: Sustain Me
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Barry Halldan

I hear the screams from beyond
The power of my memories

So fragile and weak
Some end to this pain I seek
I live among these stones
The living dead and bones
Light is here by God
But the reflex is dark
I want this to end
Spirit of love be send, now

The heat of my blood fires on
Adrenalin in my vains
Afraid of my thoughts
And this thing of my brain
I’m at the end of this way
O God I know what you say
I know I’m saved
But I am dirty and raved
Please fill me up with your spirit of hope

Have mercy on me, O God
According to your unfailing love
According to your great compassion
Blot out my transgression
Wash away all my iniquity
And cleanse me from my sin
Let me hear joy and gladness
Let the bones you have crushed rejoice
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
And grant me a willing spirit
To sustain me

You are awesome, O God
You, who answer my call
You bring life to the stones
Even to the dead and bones
I walk among the dark
But your light is my guide
You have lifted my life
To the depths of your love

Ps. 51
Track Name: Arise
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Mikaela Akrenius

Arise, shine
For your light has come
And the glory of the Lord
Rises upon you
Darkness covers the earth
Thick haze is over the peoples
But the Lord rises upon you
And his glory appears over you

Nations will come to your light
Kings to the brightness of your dawn

Pass through, pass through the gates!
Prepare the way for the people
Build up, build up the highway!
Remove the stones
Raise a banner for the nations

Lift up your eyes
And look about you
Your sons and daughters
Come to you from afar
The wealth of the seas
Will be brought to you
To you the riches
Of the nations will come

Then you will look and be radiant
Your heart will throb and swell with joy

Pass through, pass through the gates!
Prepare the way for the people
Build up, build up the highway!
Remove the stones
Raise a banner for the nations

Awake, awake, O Zion
Clothe yourself with strength
Put on your garments of splendor
Shake off your dust
Rise up, sit enthroned
Jerusalem, the holy city

Pass through, pass through the gates!
Prepare the way for the people
Build up, build up the highway!
Remove the stones
Raise a banner for the nations

Isa. 52, 60 & 62
Track Name: The Last Journey
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Mikaela Akrenius

Walking under pressure
Through divided depths
With a wall of water
On our right and left

The surging waters standing
Firm like a wall
The deep waters congealed
In the heart of the sea

Darkness upon us
Oppressors behind us
Desperately wanting to survive

I believe in victory
I believe in light
I believe that one day
We will arrive to our destiny
I believe in victory
I believe in life
I believe in Him
Who will lead us through darkness

Baptized in the sea
Renewed to follow him
Dying to our own desires
Giving birth to his schemes

Darkness upon us
Oppressors behind us
Unshakably determined to survive

I believe in victory
I believe in light
I believe that one day
We will arrive to our destiny
I believe in victory
I believe in life
I believe in Him
Who will lead us through darkness

The Lord is our strength and our song
He has become our salvation
When we pass through the waters
He will be with us
And through the rivers
They shall not overtake us
When we walk through the fire
We shall not be burned

I see victory
I see light
I see us
Fulfilling our destiny
I see victory
I see life
I see Him
- The Son of Man
Sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One
And coming on the clouds of heaven

Ex. 15, Is. 43, 1 Cor. 10, Rom. 6, Mark 14:62
Track Name: Wisdom Calls
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Mikaela Akrenius

Wisdom calls aloud in the street
She raises her voice in the public squares
At the noisy streets she cries out
In the gateways of the city she makes her speech

How long will you simple ones
love your simple ways?
How long will mockers boast
and fools hate knowledge?

I would have poured out my heart to you
And made my thoughts known to you

Seek me while you can
Or it will be to late
Then you will call to me
But I will not answer

Since you rejected me when I called
Since you ignored all my advice
And would not accept my rebuke
I in turn will laugh at your disaster

How long will you simple ones
love your simple ways?
How long will mockers boast
and fools hate knowledge?

I would have poured out my heart to you
And made my thoughts known to you

Seek me while you can!

They will call to me
But I will not answer
They will look for me
But they will not find me

Since they hated knowledge
And did not choose to fear the Lord
They will eat the fruit of their ways
And be filled with the fruit of their schemes

The waywardness of the simple will kill them
The complacency of fools will destroy them
Whoever listens to me will live in safety
And be at ease without fear of harm

How long will you simple ones
love your simple ways?
How long will mockers boast
and fools hate knowledge?

Proverbs 1
Track Name: Warriors of the Morning
Music by: Eero Tertsunen & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Mikaela Akrenius

Warriors of the morning
I call you forth into battle
Warriors of the morning
Stand fast and obey

You are a people
The nations have not yet observed
A people that the Church
Has desired and waited for

I call you out
Of dry and dead religion
I call you out
Of self-serving and man-made rules
I whisper and call you to come forth
And stand fast in the liberty of the Spirit

Come forth
And be inspired
Come forth
With dedication
Come forth
With purity of heart
Come forth
For I have risen
To be your King

Let the warriors of the morning arise!

The sons of the living God, coming forth in the Spirit
Will change the spiritual atmosphere
And correct the way of the nations
By bringing forth the power of divine purpose

I call you out
Of dry and dead religion
I call you out
Of self-serving and man-made rules
I whisper and call you to come forth
And stand fast in the liberty of the Spirit

Come forth
And be inspired
Come forth
With dedication
Come forth
With purity of heart
Come forth
For I have risen
To be your King

I have a sword in my hand
And I go forth to battle
Come, My people, and be empowered to join Me
In this battle of the end of the age

Come forth
And be inspired
Come forth
With dedication
Come forth
With purity of heart
Come forth
For I have risen
To be your King

Let the warriors of the morning arise!
Track Name: Exodus
Music by: Jani Stefanovic & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Mikaela Akrenius

Drifting in the wind of the Nile
The one made to set his people free
Chosen - not because of his deeds
But by God's sovereign will

Called by God from a burning bush
Anointed to do his will
To rescue the Israelites from their misery
And to bring them to their own land

Listen, O heavens, and he will speak
Hear, O earth, the words of His mouth
Signs and wonders will follow him
For he will proclaim the name of the Lord

"I am the Lord, the great I Am,
And I will break the bondage of slavery
I will redeem you with an outstretched arm
With mighty acts of judgment

So now, go! I am sending you to Pharaoh
To bring my people out of Egypt
Go! I will help you speak
And teach you what to say"

Listen, O heavens, and he will speak
Hear, O earth, the words of His mouth
Signs and wonders will follow him
For he will proclaim the name of the Lord

In your unfailing love You will lead
The people You have redeemed
In your strength You will guide them
To your holy dwelling

You will bring them and plant them
On the mountain of your inheritance
- The place You made for your dwelling
The sanctuary your hands established

The Lord is a warrior
Sabaoth is His name
Your right hand, O Lord,
is majestic in power

You throw down those
Who boldly oppose You
You blow with one breath
And the sea covers them

The nations will hear and tremble
Terror and dread will fall upon them
Who among their false gods
Is like You, Lord?

Who is like You
- Majestic in holiness
Awesome in glory
Working wonders?

The Lord will reign forever.

Ex. 1-15, Deut. 32, Ps. 78 & 106, Is. 52:11-12, Micah 7:15
Track Name: Majestic
Music by: Eero Tertsunen & Mikaela Akrenius
Lyrics by: Mikaela Akrenius

The Lord reigns in heaven and on earth
Robed in majesty and armed with strength
Your righteous throne is from all eternity
Your Kingdom cannot be moved

The seas have lifted up
The seas have lifted up their voice
The depths have raised up
The depths have raised up their pounding waves

How great are your works, how profound your thoughts!
How immense are the halls of your justice, how high your ways!
Your statutes stand firm, holiness adorns your house
You are exalted for endless days!

Mightier than the thunder
Mightier than the great waters
Mightier than the breakers of the sea
- the Lord on high is mighty

The Lord reigns in heaven and on earth
Robed in majesty and armed with strength
Your righteous throne is from all eternity
Your Kingdom cannot be moved

Ps. 92 & 93
