"LORD'S ARMY"

Verse One:
When you joined the Lord's Army,
Must've been many things you didn't realize.
You're faced with your first battle,
And you acted so darned surprised.
So you're found in the midst of battle, sayin',
"I must have done some awful sin!"
Well, if you didn't expect to go to war,
Why'd you ever join the Lord's Army,
My friend, my friend?
Why'd you ever join the Lord's Army, my friend?

Verse Two:
So you get up in the mornin',
Just hopin' it'll be a better day,
But you no sooner get started prayin'
And things are already seemin' gray.
So you're faced with another battle,
And you just don't know what to say.
Well, if you didn't expect to got to war,
Why'd you ever join the Lord's Army
Any way, any way?
Why'd you ever join the Lord's Army
Anyway, any way?

Bridge:
So when you're faced with a battle, don't get blue.
After all, fightin' battles is what soldiers are supposed to do.
You know, the Lord, He wants to make a fighter out of you.
Not a bed of roses, but a war
Is what He promised you, promised you.

Although you may not under stand,
Just go in and claim the land, claim the land,
Claim the land, claim the land, claim the land.
Although you may not under stand,
Just go in and claim the land, claim the land,
Claim the land, claim the land, claim the land.
