Keep On The Firing Line!

Stay On The Firing Line!

When I pass from this life and enter into eternal life, my family has been instructed to use a few different songs in the celebration of leaving this world for the better world that my Heavenly Father has created for me.

One of the songs that became near and dear to me as I first began my ministry and that has remained near and dear is called “Keep On The Firing Line!”  The lyrics encourage me to stay with it, no matter how hard the battle may become.  I hope these lyrics will minister to and encourage you today!  (Don’t Miss The Video At The End!)

  1. If you’re in the battle for the Lord and right,
    Keep on the firing line;
    If you win, my brother, surely you must fight,
    Keep on the firing line;
    There are many dangers that we all must face,
    If we die still fighting it is no disgrace;
    Cowards in the service will not find a place,
    So keep on the firing line.

    • Refrain:
      Oh, you must fight, be brave against all evil,
      Never run, nor even lag behind;
      If you would win for God and the right,
      Just keep on the firing line.
  2. God will only use the soldier He can trust,
    Keep on the firing line;
    If you’ll wear a crown then bear the cross you must,
    Keep on the firing line.
    Life is but to labor for the Master dear,
    Help to banish evil and to spread good cheer;
    Great you’ll be rewarded for your service here,
    So keep on the firing line.
  3. When we get to heaven, brother, we’ll be glad,
    Keep on the firing line;
    How we’ll praise the Savior for the call we had,
    Keep on the firing line;
    When we see the souls that we have helped to win,
    Leading them to Jesus, from the paths of sin,
    With a shout of welcome, we will all march in,
    So keep on the firing line!
