1. If you’re in the battle for the Lord and right
Keep on the firing line
If you win the victory, brother, you must fight
Keep on the firing line
There are many dangers that we all must face
If we die a-fightin’ it is no disgrace
Cowards in the services should not have a place
Keep on the firing line

(Chorus)
Oh, you must fight, be brave, against all evil
Never run or even lag behind
If would win for God and right,
Just keep on the firing line

2. God will only use a soldier He can trust
Keep on the firing line
If you wear the crown and bear the cross you must
Keep on the firing line
Live is but to labor for the Master dear
Help to banish darkness and to spread good cheer
We will be rewarded for our service here
So keep on the firing line

(Bridge)
Oh, I want to be a soldier in the army of the Lord
Army of the Lord, army of the Lord
Oh, I want to be a soldier in the army of the Lord
And fight for my Lord everyday

Repeat Bridge

(Tag)
Oh, I want to be a soldier in the army of the Lord
Army of the Lord, army of the Lord
Oh, I want to be a soldier in the army of the Lord
So keep on the firing line
