    He's running through the woods so black
    A loyal servant of christ
    Dogs are barking down his back
    He's running for his life

    He came with words of love and peace
    These heathens had to be saved
    He thought that he could make them see
    Instead he was enslaved

    In captivity he spoke of god
    To all he met he preached
    But when his master's patience ran out
    He knew he had to flee

    Tears are running down his cheeks
    As he sobbign realizes
    That in this land his god is weak
    And today he's going to die

    He stumbles out onto an open field
    Where an old oak tree grows
    In the branches hang men of three
    Dressed in preacher robes

    His knees refuse to carry him on
    Terror shines in his eyes
    His faith in christ is almost gone
    His god's left him to die
    Below the dead he says his prayers
    To the god he thought was alive
    When he hears a calm voice say:

    As his breath leaves his eyes open wide
    A bright light comes from above
    He greets this light with a smile
    And thinks: "There is a God"

    The sound of eight hooves reaches his ears
    Comes from the heavenly light
    Two wolves' howls fill his heart with fear
    And he sees two ravens fly
    Down from the sky a warlord rides
    Like fire his one eye glows
    And just before the preacher dies
    He knows his god is false
