Through storms and wars*
Take me into a new place,
A world so beautiful,
A city of treasure buried beneath a sky of injustice.

I am here, but I am filled with fear.
Am I ready or am I standing in naivety?

Send me out. Send me out...

Through storms and wars
Take me into a new place,
A world so beautiful,
A city of treasure buried beneath a sky of curses.

In the air the smell of death, the grip of fear was all surrounding.
The oppression all-consuming, overbearing, overwhelming.

I am here, but I am filled with fear.
Am I ready or am I standing in naivety?


(But the scriptures tell us that the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear,
But one of power and of love and of a sound mind,
That we can go into the world and that Christ will be our strength and our protection,
And that the sick will be healed and the dead will be raised).

Send me out
Let it be.
Send me out
Let it be.

I am your hands, God use me.
Send me out, out
Let it be. Let it be.

I am your hands, your hands, God use me...

A nation on it's knees will see the power of God released.
A nation on it's face will see salvation in this place

    General Commentfor those who don't know, this song features guest vocals by Mattie Montgomery of For Today.

    Song commentary (by guitarist Vasely Sapunov):
    "This song was written about the emotions and spiritual experiences that we went through as a naïve band thrust into ministry in a Third World country during our time in Mexico [September/October 2008] with our great friends For Today [tour blogs: part 1 - part 2]. The city and state of ‘Oaxaca’ (pronounced ‘Wah-Hah-Kah’) is where we spent most of our time in Mexico. This was a life-changing experience for every single person involved and throughout all of the oppression and darkness that was over that place, our presence and unity in Christ meant that God took victory because His people showed humility and hunger for Him and His truth. God’s power was released in a huge way over this place and I believe that this will increase over time because of the hearts and the great witness of many of the believers that are situated there. Mattie from For Today was an obvious choice of guest vocalist for the track as he was there with us during this time, and it was in the city of Oaxaca that we actually asked him to be on our next album. It all worked out very organically. I believe the track carries a special anointing of the Holy Spirit and ties in well with what I believe was a prophetic annointing on the interlude track ’The Eye of the Storm Part II’."
