Soldiers Under Command Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Soldiers Under Command (5:03)
[Verse 1]
We are the soldiers under God's command
We hold His two-edged sword within our hands
We're not ashamed to stand up for what's right
We win without sin, it's not by our might
And we're fighting all the sin
And the good book -- it says we'll win!

[Chorus]
Soldiers, Soldiers, under command
Soldiers, Soldiers, fighting the Lords battle plan

[Verse 2]
Are you a soldier under God's command
Help fight the good fight, join us while you can
The battle that's waiting is fought so easily
Through Him, without sin there is victory
And were fighting all the sin
And the good book -- it says we'll win!

[Repeat Chorus]
2. Makes Me Wanna Sing (2:51)
[Verse 1]
We're gonna rock and have a good time
Tonight's the night, the night we move
Together we will stand to rock the land
We're gonna rock for something new
We're gonna rock for something true
Tonight's the night so let's lift up our hands

[Chorus]
Jesus, King, King of Kings
Jesus, makes me wanna sing

[Verse 2]
He makes me want to jump around
He keeps my feet above the ground
Tonight the night it's best to rock the land
We're gonna rock for something new
We're gonna rock for something true
Tonight's the night so let's lift up our hands

[Repeat Chorus]
3. Together Forever (4:03)
[Verse 1]
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
All you girls and all you guys
Let's rock the world with a new beat
C'mon don't wait
Don't you pass it by

[Chorus]
One big family
That will live eternally
Together forever
All you have to do
Is receive the one who died for you

[Verse 2]
I get so high I can't stay in my seat
Excitement fills the air
Let's rock the world with a new beat
All you girls and guys everywhere

[Repeat Chorus]
4. First Love (5:43)
[Verse 1]
She waits alone, oh every night
Tears are in her eyes
She has lost all the love she had

[Verse 2]
She lived her life for Him each day
She threw it all away
To live for herself - live her life her way

[Chorus]
There is no love like the love of your first love
It's so true
It's for you as you are
Tears in the night
Filled with pain
You're running from the love
That you had once before - your first love

[Verse 3]
Someone to hold you though the pain
To make you smile again
And to protect you forever

[Verse 4]
Someone to take your fears away
To help you through each day
To carry you when you just can't go on

[Chorus]
There is no love like the love of your first love
It's so true
Your love will never leave you
Tears in the night
Filled with pain
You're running from the love
That you had before you cried out for your first love

[Repeat Chorus]
5. Rock That Makes Me Roll (4:56)
[Verse 1]
They say that rock and roll is strong
But God's the rock that makes us roll
Don't need no drugs to help us push on
We've got his power in our souls

[Bridge]
Stand up and fight
For what you believe in
We know...

[Chorus]
He's the rock that makes us roll
Rockin' all the world
Giving me the courage to be bold
Giving me just what I need
Always guaranteed
He's the rock that makes me roll - rock'n'roll

[Verse 2]
You say that rock and roll is strong
Yes, God's the rock that makes us roll
Don't need no drugs to help you push on
You can have His power in your soul
Repeat Bridge and Chorus
6. Reach Out (5:21)
[Verse 1]
I was looking for the answer all the time
Always looking, never finding
I was empty inside
Falling into darkness
Needing the light to see
Reaching out for shelter
Then He set me free

[Chorus]
I reached out, You reach out, He'll reach out today
I reached out, You reach out, He'll reach out today

[Verse 2]
If you're looking for the answer, now this is the time
To stop looking and start finding that feeling inside
You don't need the darkness
When there's a light to see
He'll provide the shelter
And He'll set you free

[Repeat Chorus]

I'll reach out, I'll reach out
I'll reach out, I'll reach out today
Oh, reach out today
Oh, reach out today
Oh, reach out today
Oh, reach out today
I'll reach out today
7. (Waiting for) A Love That's Real (4:36)
[Verse 1]
She says she tries so hard to show it
She wants to say what's on her mind
Seems like he doesn't want to know it
She says he's always so unkind

[Bridge]
But she's not giving up
Until he sees
Her live inside is heavenly

[Chorus]
I love you, I want you
But that won't change the way I feel
I love you, I want you
I don't want love that's just not real

[Verse 2]
It seems like nothing's getting better
She knows she just can't carry on
She always thought it would last forever
But now she knows that it's not love

[Bridge]
She waits so patiently for perfect love
She knows someday it will come from above

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge]
She waits for Godly love
Knowing that someday it will come from above

[Repeat Chorus ]
8. Together as One (5:01)
[Verse 1]
Now is the time
That we stand together as one
A new light inside us will shine
As bright as the sun

[Verse 2]
Let's bring, bring in the new
And do away with the old
A new love, a new love that's true
A love that's never cold,
A love that never dies
A love that fills our souls
We will survive

[Chorus]
Together as one
We'll stand for the world to see
Together as one
We'll shine bright throughout eternity
All the dreams we've dreamed before
Are now reality
Now the dreams of a perfect love
Will always be

[Repeat Chorus ]

You and I in a perfect love faithfully
9. Surrender (4:28)
[Verse 1]
Singing out in harmony
It explains so well
What we're called to do
Want to rock so you can see
We can rock as well
Rock as well for you
Bridge You can have it all tonight
Pick it up and make it right
Oh, you can be free
In the dark you need a light
Do you want to make it right

[Chorus]
Oh, Jesus Christ is the lover of your soul
And He wants to give you all you need
So freely surrender
Open up unto His Majesty

[Repeat Chorus]

Jesus Christ is the lover of your soul
And He wants to give you all you need
So freely surrender
To the King
Freely surrender
Open up unto His Majesty...
10. Battle Hymn Of The Republic (2:36)
Mine eyes have seen the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage
Where the grapes of wrath are stored
He hath loosed the fateful lightening
Of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on
Glory, Glory Hallelujah
Glory, Glory Hallelujah
Glory, Glory Hallelujah
His truth is marching on
His truth is marching on
