ELIM MISSION MASSACRE 23 JUNE 1978
Guerillas crossed the border, from their base in Mozambique,
Cowardly satanic whores, trained well to kill the meek.
Christendom, the word of God, was communist’s enemy.
From this land Rhodesia, they wished His Word to flee.
In the dead of night these 'freedom fighters' surrounded Eagle School,4
Wild animals from the depth of Hell, their intensions foul and cruel,
Condemned to death thirteen souls, by Pharisee Kangaroo court.
Elim's Missionaries forced onto a field, to witness Satan's 'sport'
Three men, five women and four young children slain,
Twelve meek and gentle souls, enduring untold pain,
Hacked to death and mutilated, beyond all recognition,
A three month baby torn asunder, ended this abhorrent mission.
Bayoneted, beaten, left for dead, only one dear soul survived,
So traumatized and beaten, later from her wounds she died.
Martyred Soldiers of the Lord, humbly proud and brave,
Butchered by the very ones, whom they were called to save.
When we look upon Zimbabwe, at the setting of the sun,
Let us nere forget the way their 'freedom' thus was won,
Satan's ghouls now sitting on their stolen thrones of power,
Cheering the death of missionaries, doubtless their finest hour.
Surely Angels wept aloud, on that darkest night of seventy-eight,
The twenty third of June… Satan broke through heaven's gate
How do we ever come to terms with such heinous savagery?
We remember our dear suffering Lord… nailed to Calvary's tree.
