Working For The Lord

(With Ernest Ray Lynn)

We'll be fighting for our countrymen
But we'll be working for the Lord

The Bible is our weapon
The amunition's inside I'm told
Let's go fight on Jesus' side
He hasn't lost one soul

Let's join his band of soldiers
Cause they don't live by sword
We'll be fighting for our countrymen
But we'll be working for the Lord

Sixteen years ago today
I gave birth to a little boy
And of all the worries I've had for him
Every minute has been a joy

And when they laid him in my arms
On that twenty-seventh day of May
I looked down at his tiny little face
And you should have heard me pray

Oh, dear God, you've blessed me
With more than I deserve
And someday, God, when he grows up
It's You I pray he'll serve

Now all his friends have gathered around
To help him celebrate
He just blew out the candles
And has begin to cut the cake

They're laughing and they're talking
Of what they're gonna do and be some day
And when they get a little older
They're gonna go fight for their country

But I couldn't help but overhear
What my son had to say
And there's not one doubt in my mind
That my prayer paid off today

We'll be fighting for our countrymen
But we'll be working for the Lord
