“Ceterum censeo Carthaginem delendam esse
The old man used to say for every occasion
And this idea was rooted in his mind
For at any time he was expecting action
These meant no mere words, but the preservation of his kind
The enemy posed a threat to his preservation and prosperity
Every second passed was closer to his calamity

“Ceterum censeo Carthaginem delendam esse
The old man would end his lofty speeches with the phrase
For this desire was part of his daily walk and talk
this hope was ever closer to his face
As It was only a matter of a tickin’ clock
The enemy posed a threat to his preservation and prosperity
Every second passed was closer to his calamity

“Ceterum censeo Carthaginem delendam esse”
This victory was an obsession for elder Cato
The phrase had become his motto
The guiding principle of his life’s flow
And possibly the annoyance of friend and foe
Carthage posed a threat to his preservation and prosperity
Every second passed was closer to his calamity

“Si autem Spiritu facta carnis mortificatis vivetis”
The Christian lives this phrase in every moment
This truth must be engraved in his heart
And at any time he must expect confrontment
This is no mere philosophy, but to fight the war his part
The World, The Flesh, and the Devil will seek the kill
At every second they will test the skill

The Romans eventually destroyed the city
By their strength and determination
But we will not secure our victory
By our strength and determination
It was done on Calvary

By His strength and determination
So work out your salvation
With fear and trembling
