Yes, a call there is
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Yes, a call there is.

"When the enemy shall come in like a flood." (Isaiah59,19)

1. Yes, a call there is,
  one that must be heard;
for the call is his,
  his who should be feared.
'Tis a call for fruit,
  fruit of faith and love,
and, beyond dispute,
  coming from above. PDF - Midi

2. 'Tis a call to be
  valiant for the truth;
'tis to you, to me,
  'tis to age, to youth.
He that hath an ear,
  let him hear, and do.
Nothing need we fear,
  for the Lord is true.

3. When the foe comes in,
  flood-like, and defies:
when the man of sin
  fills the world with lies;
when he claims it all,
  and asserts his claim,
is there not a call
  to defeat his aim?

4. How resist his claim?
  Think we well of this.
How defeat his aim?
  This the question is.
'Tis by faith and prayer,
  by the Spirit's sword;
these the weapons are,
  furnished by the Lord.

5. These it was, we know,
  that in ages past,
smote our mortal foe,
  and he stood aghast;
caused his heart to quail,
  and his knees to shake.
These will never fail,
  why then others take?
