between the hammer & the anvil lyrics – judas priest

storm warnin’
but there’s no fear
lies formin’
the sacrament lays bare

the sinner
will testify
they’ll suffer
when sacrificed on high

the burnin’ sermons purge their evil words
between the hammer and the anvil

force rises
false ritual
baptises
the body and the soul

our union
their fall from grace
confession
(confess your sins)
will seal them to their fate

the burnin’ sermons will survive their curse
between the hammer and the anvil

transgression
they prey on grief
our mission
to purify believe

this altar
gives power and light
they’ll falter
while we are shinin’ bright

the burnin’ sermons consecrate their sin
between the hammer and the anvil
between the hammer and the anvil
between the hammer and the anvil
between the hammer and the anvil

storm warnin’
but there’s no fear
