Soldiers Of The Lion Lyrics
The field is white and frosty, the hour is drawing near
The battle lines are being drawn as the hour of dawn appears
In the stillness of the morning, the air is crisp and charged
With the tension of the battle, and the enemy at large
The battlefield is crowded, but the soldiers here are few
Yet the enemy is held at bay, no weapon can get through
Our tiny band of warriors continue in our stand
And as new soldiers join us, we prepare to take the land
We form a line of conquest, like fire our armor shines
With unshakable advancement, we move against the lines
Our swords are drawn and ready, and our numbers grow each day
We'll soon be fully strengthened and we'll blow the troops away!
We're the soldiers of the Lion, we're the army of the light
The unstoppable battalion that drives away the night
And the Lion is our standard, and we know we cannot die
'Cause the mighty name of Jesus is our sovereign battle Cry!
We move against the forces of the father of all lies
And the enemy is forced to flee before our very eyes
For no demon can resist us or begin to stand against
An army fully armored, no! Hell has no defense!
So look out powers of darkness, your hour has finally come
Our commander's name is Jesus, and we've got you on the run
And we'll charge you and we'll route you
With the Spirit's mighty sword
You've had this planet long enough,
You know you're not our Lord!
So get back to outer darkness, and you leave the saints alone
Your weapons cannot prosper, we're commissioned by the
