Song background:

When our family found out the church was accepting submissions for the new hymn book, I decided it would be fun to compose a hymn as a summer project. If I could do it as a final in my theory class, it should be easy as a family, right? First I let the kids decide what it should be about. My 6 year old (the oldest) loves the story of the Stripling Warriors and the song Army of Helaman, so he wanted it to be related to that, my 4 year old said it should be about "Christ is the Lord". I pondered upon that for a while and the lyrics came to me one night through "sudden strokes of inspiration". I ran it by the kids and they approved. The kids chose the melody, my husband (a drummer) helped create some interesting rhythmic ideas and then using my music knowledge I gave them multiple choice options to choose the harmony and chord progression.

This was a great family project and it was exciting to be able to perform a few years after we wrote it when that 6 year old turned 8 and got baptized.

If you choose to use this song, me and my family would love to hear how you used it and what you think!

Lyrics: We Can Fight for The Lord <br/>When Helaman led his valiant young men, <br/>He taught them to fight for the truth. <br/>They fought with their sword, <br/>And they fought for the Lord, <br/>And miracles brought them back home. <br/>Chorus: <br/>Though the battle is long, <br/>With faith we stay strong— <br/>We stand tall with courage and faith. <br/>Obedience to God gives us power. <br/>We are fighting for truth ev’ry hour. <br/>We stand tall, for Christ is the Lord. <br/>When I’m in the world, <br/>I won't need a sword <br/>but I can still fight for the truth. <br/>I cling to God’s word <br/>as I follow the Lord, <br/>and miracles lead me to Him.
