Fear, Ye Fiends!

Though the sons of night blaspheme,
More there are with us than them;
God with us, we cannot fear;
Fear, ye fiends, for Christ is here!

Lo! to faith’s enlightened sight,
All the mountain flames with light;
Hell is nigh, but God is nigher,
Circling us with hosts of fire.

Charles Wesley, “Earth, rejoice, our Lord is King,” The Methodist Hymnbook, No. 246.

Find me a praise chorus that has that kind of power and theology. Good luck.
