The keys to death and hell
The ailing kingdom doomed to fail
The bonds of sin and heart will break
The pilgrims course will take

Quelling the devil's might
And ready for eternal fight
Aching limbs and fainting soul
Holy battles take their toll

Liberty and hope divine
Changing the water into wine
So to you we bid farewell
Kingdom of heaven to hell

Spirit holy, life eternal
Raise me up, take me home
Pilgrim sunrise, pagan sunset
Onward journey begun

To courage find and gracious will
Deliver good from ill
Clean the water, clean our guilt
With us do what you will

Then will my judge appear
Bear no false angel that I hear
For only then I will confess
To my eternal hell

Now give us our holy sign
Changing the water into wine
So to you we bid farewell
Kingdom of heaven to hell

Spirit holy, life eternal
Raise me up, take me home
Pilgrim sunrise, pagan sunset
Onward journey begun

Now give us our holy sign
Changing the water into wine
So to you, we bid farewell
Kingdom of heaven to hell

Spirit holy, life eternal
Raise me up, take me home
Pilgrim sunrise, pagan sunset
Onward journey begun

Spirit holy, life eternal
Raise me up, take me home
Pilgrim sunrise, pagan sunset
Onward journey begun
