Michael Card Album: The Life (box set)- Part 1 Track: Spirit of the Age
Spirit of the Age Lyrics
I thought that I heard crying coming through my door. Was it Rachel weeping for her sons who were no more? Could it have been the babies crying for themselves, Never understanding why they died for someone else?
The voices head of weeping and of wailing, History speaks of it on every page. Of innocent and helpless little babies, Offerings to the spirit of the age.
No way of understanding this sad and painful sign. Whenever Satan rears his head there comes a tragic time. If he could crush the cradle, then that would stop the cross. He knew that once the Light was born his every hope was lost!
Now every age had heard it, the voice that speaks from hell. "Sacrifice your children and for you it will be well." The subtle serpent's lying, his dark and ruthless rage. Behold it is revealed to be the spirit of the age!
Soon all the ones who seemed to die for nothing Will stand beside the Ancient of Days, With joy we'll see that Infant from a manger Come and crush the spirit of the age
