Fight for the Lord!

Fight for the Lord!

SONG: A song to encourage young people to become warriors for the Lord!

Elihu Pedersen wrote the melody and lyrics to this song in the hope that young people could realize that the Word of God is for them too! It is sung here by Clare Beachy, Ange Byler, Megan Beachy, Sonya Beachy, Buddy Coblentz, and Christian Beachy.

Youth! O hear the Spirit's challenge
Ringing through the land.
Youth! O break with worldly folly;
Shatter sin's dread band.
Live as faith's true royal heroes
For God's Word alone.
Then no power can overcome you;
God is on the throne!

O young people, come! Heed the Word
And fight for the Lord!
O young people, come! Heed the Word
And fight for the Lord!

Haste! Care naught for gain and riches;
Stand firm at your post.
God will make you rich in wisdom—
Warriors in His host.
Say farewell to friends and family;
Strive in Truth's great name!
They whose hearts burn for God's kingdom
Never blush with shame.

O young people, come! Heed the Word
And fight for the Lord!
O young people, come! Heed the Word
And fight for the Lord!

Fiery trials and tribulation
Try your faithfulness.
Are you filled with jubilation
As you onward press?
Righteousness, faith, truth, and purity
Give you strength of heart.
Youth! Advance in holy oneness.
Come! Fulfil your part.

O young people, come! Heed the Word
And fight for the Lord!
O young people, come! Heed the Word
And fight for the Lord!
