I summoned up the living dead
And demons in the skies

And watched the virgin die

Present at ungodly births in holy paradise

And raped mother of Christ
(Oh, mother of Christ)

C'mon baby raise your knife
Welcome darling to my sacrifice
(Oh, sacrifice)

Tie the angel to the altar
Sacrifice to Lord of hell
Let the warm blood torrent, baby
While the moonlight sets the night on spell

I saw the lightning strike in the skies
And heard you roar of pain
Oh, lift the knife and strike once more
Your blood is mixed with the rain

C'mon baby raise your knife
Welcome darling to my sacrifice
(Oh, sacrifice)

I summoned up the living dead
And demons in the skies
I drank from chalice warm and red
And watched the virgin die

Present at ungodly births in holy paradise
I spread eternal dark on earth
And raped mother of Christ
(Oh, mother of Christ)

C'mon baby raise your knife
Welcome darling to my sacrifice
(Oh, sacrifice)
