i dare
indeed i do for i am bold
upon the gates i place my hands and shake
rise up St. Peter
rise up and welcome me home

i have made a joyful noise within the devil's ear
stomp the ground i have
causing dust to fall upon his wrinkled brow
i have shown him no fear
retreat from him i have not

St. Peter ... open i say
for home i have come
i wish to look upon my Father
to but touch His hem
find peace within His grasp

the good fight i have fought
it is written in my Brother's blood
upon my Father's promise i shall await
i shall make my stand upon my knees
as we rejoice with much celebration in my homecoming
