"BATTLE FOR THE EARTH"

Verse 1
Oh, I would not want the comfort of a self-indulgent life,
And I would not dwell in luxury where the land with sin is rife,
And I would not be a coward, no I would not dare desert,
So please send me to the front lines of the battle for the earth.
Verse 2
I confess I have been fearful of the adversary's sword,
But I've looked upon Your visage when they crucified You, Lord,
And You told me of the conflict, what the victor's crown is worth,
So please send me to the front lines of the battle for the Earth.
Chorus 1
And I would not be a coward, no, I would not dare desert,
So please send me to the front lines of the battle for the Earth.

Verse 3
Oooh, I pledge now my allegiance to my Lord and risen King,
And I gladly yield my loyalty, though it costs me everything.
From my fear and from my weakness, Your grace shall be revealed.
Let me seek only Your honor as I strive upon the battlefield.
Verse 4
So I'm strapping on my armor and I'm reaching for my sword,
And I'm taking my new weapon of Your glittering powerful Word,
And I've fixed my eyes on Heaven, on that day of joy and mirth,
When we celebrate the victory of the battle for the Earth.
Chorus 2
And You told me of the conflict, what the victor's crown is worth,
So please send me to the front lines of the battle for the Earth.
And I've fixed my eyes on Heaven, on that day of joy and mirth,
When we celebrate the victory of the battle for the Earth.
-----------
Oh, send me to the front lines
Of the battle for the Earth Ohh ohh
Got my eyes on heaven.
