"TAKE A STAND"

Verse 1
I walked the road of yesteryear,
Tried to remember clear
Just what I'm doing here.
Oh, I remember:

We're boxers in a fighting ring;
The Devil's got a nasty swing.
I think I'll knock him out,
Yeah, that's what it's all about.

Chorus 1
So take a stand.
[Stand up, stand up for Jesus, soldiers of the cross!]
Take a stand.
[Lift high the royal banner, don't let it suffer loss!]

Verse 2
Now, it might get real tough,
You may think you've had enough,
But don't give up your place;
It's worth the dangers that we face.

The Enemy's no gentleman,
He's got his own messed-up plan,
But you can bring him down;
Just don't give him an inch of ground.

Chorus 2
So take a sta[Take a stand!]nd.
Take a stand.

Bridge 1
I tried out livin' for my pleasure,
But love and souls that last forever
Are the only reason I still live and breathe,
They're everything.

Chorus 3
So take a stand.
[Stand up, stand up for Jesus, soldiers of the cross!]
Take a stand.
[Lift high the royal banner, don't let it suffer loss!]

Bridge 2
I tried out living for my pleasure,
But love and souls that last forever
Are the only reason I still live and breathe,
They're everything.

Chorus 4
So take a stand.
Take a stand.
