Keep on the firing line

[G]If you're in the battle for the Lord and right,

just [C]keep on the firing [G]line.

If you win the battle, surely you must fight,

so [D]keep on the firing [G]line.


Brother [G]keep on the firing [G7]li…ne,

 [C]keep on the firing [G]line.

Time is getting short, Jesus coming [EM]soon,

brother [G]keep on the [D]firing [G]line.


There are many dangers everyone must face,

if you die a-fighting there is no disgrace.

With the Lord, for cowards you will find no place,

so keep on the firing line.    + CHORUS


God can only use the soldiers he can trust

to keep on the firing line.

If you wear the crown, bear the cross you must,

so keep on the firing line.     + CHORUS (2x)
