The Truth.

Jared Hayslip

This Means War 1987

Luis Carlos B Monteiro

Essa é uma das melhores músicas que já ouvi.
Petra é uma banda que não deve nada a suas equivalentes no "Rock secular". Falo de Journey, Kansas, Boston anos 80
Deep Purple, Black Sabbath anos 70 só pra ficar em alguns exemplos.

Letra y Música por Bob Hartman

Referencia Biblica: 2 de Cronicas 10:4, Santiago 5:16

Out on your own with your own self reliance

You've got no one to watch your back

You find yourself caught with no strong alliance

You've been left open for attack

Over your head the condition is graver

You've given ground you can't retrieve

The cards are stacked and they're not in your favor

But you've got an ace up your sleeve


Get on your knees and fight like a man

You'll pull down strongholds if you just believe you can

Your enemy will tuck his tail and flee

Get on your knees and fight like a man

Under the gun, you've got no place to hide out

Backed in the corner on your own

This is one storm you are destined to ride out

One way to leave the danger zone

You've got the backbone to fight this tide

You've got the will to survive

You've got the weapon, it's at your side

You've got to learn to confide


"Ponte De Rodillas Y Pelea Como Un Hombre"

Solo, confiando nada mas que en ti mismo.

No tienes a nadie que te guarde las espaldas.

Te encuentras atrapado sin un aliado fuerte.

Quedaste indefenso ante nuevos ataques.

Sobre tu cabeza la situación es peor.

Cediste terreno que no puedes recuperar.

Las cartas están dadas y no en tu favor.

Pero tienes un as en la manga...


Ponte de rodillas y pelea como un hombre.

Derribaras fortalezas si crees que puedes.

Tu enemigo va a meter la cola entre las patas y huirá.

Ponte de rodillas y pelea como un hombre.

Te apunta con un arma y no tienes a donde escapar,

estas solo, atrapado en un rincón.

Esta es una tormenta de la que estas destinado a salir.

Solo hay un camino para salir de la zona de peligro.

Tu tienes una fortaleza para luchar contra la marea,

tienes la voluntad de sobrevivir.

Tienes el arma, esta a tu lado.

Tienes que aprender a confiar.

What we MUST be doing NOW!


I remember when this came out. I was working in a Christian radio station), both the music director and myself, immediately grabbed our guitars and went to learning this song... The whole album is great, but I love this song... Man, much of today's music has missed the message of these simple, but awesome songs...


If my life ever became a Pokemon series, this would be my theme song.

Real men pray, anyone who doesn't gets hurt, and alot of people don't seem to get that today.

Back to The 90s

Love this song!


I remember my mom playing this in the car when I was little and grew to love it. :)

Franco B

I'm with you on that, too!!

Nathan Lindahl

@azzyandlexie 2 different styles of vocalist, Greg has a 4 octave range and John doesn't

Tammy Matney

Beautiful song


@UnknownPetraFan amen to that!

Bax Baxtersmaster

to...not AT sbasmaling. I had a mother-in-law that was Church of Christ. Hard Core. She swore everyone was a heathen or blasphemous if the name of their Church did not contain the word Christ. The baptist part of my family and the catholic part of my family were worshiping John the Baptist, and idols according to her...and the Jewish part, were Christ killers! and nothing more. Just a suggestion, why do you not get up there, in a large forum with proper permission, and make it mainstream?

ok i like petra and this famous song ! ok ! with the power of god one day all ( se ) realise ! your familly , the health , et ancora thanx petra receive my friendship et all in the lor god bless dav'

Rudy Briskar

I can't wait to see them live at Creation NW 2013~


Brings back some serious memories! Petra is the first christian rock band I ever went to see! Was at LoveFest in Milford Nebraska in I think '87, couldn't talk (hoarse) for 2 days after This Means War!

Steven Whitehouse

Once again thanks for all these videos your uploading unknownpetrafan. They are truly my favorite christian rock groups. This is the best way to fight back is to Pray, that is get on your knees and Pray To Jesus, He'll help you through all your troubles if you just ask!!

Riki Ribi


Woe, Woe, Woe
satan is using a hoe
to attack us and destroy
hidden in the horse of Troy

he puts on a "friendly face"
for, "just in case"
we fall into his trap
he can deride us in his lap

Following You, our heavenly Boss,
on the way of the Cross
satan always lies in wait
to entice us with his bait

As he has only a short time left
his behavior becomes very deft
enticing as many as he can get
to lure them in his evil drag-net

But I know, oh my Lord
that I try to strike a chord
to elicit Your intervention
to keep satan in detention

Impatiently waiting for Your return
which we still need to earn
free us from the snares of the devil
push him back to the lowest level

In God we trust
Rita Biesemans November 5 2013


my fav Petra song


I love this song!!!

Jess Everett

This song is my battle cry!!!

Silver&Black Raiders

I can completely relate to this song. Many, many nights alone have led me to fight on my knees.


The man is head of the house it is his responsibility to ensure that his house is in order the best way to do it is in prayer

Michael J. Martin



This is as bad as striper hah.

Noah Tabacchi

Funny how this song title can be political now days. I wish I could go back to the 80's!

Sara Smaling

@wwwuraRetard Hmm. Maybe you misunderstood my comment, but that's okay. There is plenty of great Christian music out there and we can all have our own opinion. The point is does it glorify God, does it encourage other Christians, does it draw people to Christ? Those, in my mind, are the guidelines for great Christian music. I realize that there are similarities in music, but what I was speaking of is when people take secular songs and make them 'christian' by just changing the words or (cont)

Sheepdog Smokey

Remember, when you think you can't stand against what's facing you, if God is with you, NONE can stand against you!

Sara Smaling

@sbasmaling make a song that sounds so much like the world with no mention of God, that you can only tell it's supposed to be Christian by the group which sings it. With as much music as is out in the world there will be some works that are quite close to others, and that's cool, it's not that which I was speaking of. Sorry for offending you. On another note, there will probably never be another Band like Petra. The days of that kind of music seem to be over. Days of autotune reign.

Linda cancao de petra...

Jacinda Chapman

Love it Thank you ❤️ God Bless you ?


I saw them do this song live in 1987!!! My youth group took us, to the concert. I lost my cassette tape : (


If only more guys would take this advice. Most of 'em (I'm sure there are exceptions) think it's sissy to pray beyond blessing their food. Petra and Stryper are THE BEST Christian bands ever.

Ben Wessel

one of my all time favorite petra songs

Cole Miner's Daughter

Yes, spend the needed time on your knees, but sooner or later you got to go back and battle, and no warrior does that only on their knees, you have to stand up, put on the full armour, and battle, but prayer is the most needed weapon you have...remember, we walk by faith, and not by sight, and if your Father is for you, then who can be against you?

The Exiled

There aren't many Christian bands anymore ??


Based on James 5:16 and 2nd Chronicles 10:4; and I, also, say Ephesians 6:10-20.

Mauricio M

Only laying on your knees and speaking to the King of Kings is the Ultimate weapon! Confess your sins and ask for guidance and don't sin no more and your prayers will be heard


Petra was one of the main driving forces that got me through high school. As good a Biblical commentary as any printed in a book!

Riki Ribi


If you follow the Master
the world will reject you
as it rejects the Pastor
with a lot of ballyhoo

The disciple is NOT above the Master
nor the servant above his Lord
the world is heading for a disaster
the Creator is ready to have it restored

The Queen of Heaven comes to warn
us poor children of naughty Eve
if we don’t listen, we’ll surely mourn
in an “eternity” full of grief

Each one of us is free to decide
whether to follow God or a worldly path
whether to be humble or full of pride
whether to be full of Love or full of wrath

The Righteous Judge keeps patiently
inviting His children to choose wisely
but most of us refuse blatantly
to follow His Commandments very precisely

He who will not hear, will feel .

definitivamente una de las mejores...

Vic Casiano

How I wish I was 17 again

Riki Ribi


In a world so full of darkness
hearts transform into harshness
mouths are hurling insults
living the Me, Me, Me, cults

A brother killing his brother
a daughter killing her mother
kids who choose rather 
than to obey, to kill the father

a world drenched in the occult
and in God refuses to exult
has chosen its own direction
thus asking for Your correction

As in the times of Noah, we are in the days
You spoke of in so many different ways
we live in the end of time as we know it
in which finally Thy Kingdom will be legit

Please Lord, let Your Light
more than ever be so bright
let it shine upon each faithful son
to achieve the victory already won.

Jesus will triumph in the final victory over the devil

I saw them in concert in Joplin, MO back in 87 on their "THIS MEANS WAR TOUR" & Stephen Curtis Chapman opened for them. I so wanted to talk to the members of Petra being a BIG fan but they did their set and left so fast your head could spin. But I did get to spend an hour talking to Stephen Curtis Chapman (which at that time was just rising to fame - never heard of him before). I can tell you this, Stephen was so genuine and down to earth. He gave me encouragement to continue with my music.


Great - Song, Great Words, & Great Victory !

James Edgar

This song speaks to my greatest spiritual struggle. I act like I believe I can conquer sin and battle my problems with my own effort. After I create disasters for myself, then I remember to pray. One of these days I'll convince my stubborn self to pray first.

Allen Moore

Prayer Warrior!!

Sara Smaling

Sweet as! I just got the 'Petra Greatest Hits' CD, this isn't on it. That is sad, but, there are HEAPS of great Petra songs on there. My personal fav - Judas Kiss. Man these guys are so much better then the new Christian Music. I hate it that many artists now try to sound just like the world. Get some originality! These guys Rock! Cheers bro.


One my all time favorite songs. Period.
