One from Salem and one from Sodom
Face to face these ancient kings
One from highest, one from bottom
Each to us a lesson brings.
And Abraham who went to war
To save his kindred and his kin
Spoils he carried back and more
Teaching all the woes of sin.
A Father looking for a city
Whose Makerís from above
Takes the time to care and pity
puts to work a heart of love.
Then too there is Melchizedek
With no beginning and no end
Speaks of one who can protect
And is the sinnerís friend
But these are types and shadows
Of greater things to come
Pointing fingers, painted arrows
Showing Christ, Godís Son
lamb once slain, and shorn the fleece
King of Kings and Prince of Peace
When He must, He went to war
To die for sin, what He came for
Yet Won the battle of the kings
Yes. This is why my spirit sings
He brings my soul to Salem Place
and saves this sinnerís soul by grace
