No Battle - No Victory

Where there has been no battle
There can be no victory,
And where there is no victory
There can not be a true peace.

Where there is just indifference,
Or an uneasy truce,
A shrugging of the shoulders,
A careless "What's the use?"
The struggle will continue,
But never will there be
A real decisive outcome,
Or a clearcut victory.

So praise the Lord for the battles,
And for His Victory.
For He has won the Victory
And He will give us Peace!
