"ON THE FIRING LINE"

Verse One:
To the front away, in the Gospel war,
With the cross of Christ going on before;
'Mid the fire and smoke and the cannon's roar,
We'll shoulder to shoulder stand.

Chorus:
We are out today on the firing line,
For the truth and right we will boldly fight.
We are out today on the firing line,
A victorious loyal band.
See our banners wave, hear the bugles blow,
Sounding out o'er sea and land;
In a steady line on to vict'ry go,
And shoulder to shoulder stand.

Verse Two:
Down the battleline pass the word along,
Let your faith be firm and your courage strong.
Though the foe be fierce and the fight be long,
We'll shoulder to shoulder stand.

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse Three:
Till in every land is our flag unfurled,
Till the Enemy from his throne is hurled;
Preaching full Salvation to all the world,
We'll shoulder to shoulder stand.

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse Four:
See our banners wave, hear the bugles blow,
Sounding out o'er sea and land;
In a steady line on to vict'ry go,
And shoulder to shoulder stand,
And shoulder to shoulder stand.
