Lyrics Post: “Fight the Good Fight”

Last Sunday I shared a verse from one of the scheduled church readings for the week, from the New Testament, Paul’s First Letter to Timothy. I correlated the reading to a song by one of my favorite bands, Canadian power trio Triumph. Here are the lyrics to that song. Still inspires me today.

Fight the Good Fight

“The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long

Feels like we’re running out of time

Every day it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong

You got to read between the lines

Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can

Make it through another day

Make it worth the price we pay

The Good Book says it’s better to give than to receive

I do my best to do my part

Nothin’ in my pockets I got nothin’ up my sleeve

I keep my magic in my heart

Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby

I am counting on you

You know what you’ve got to do

Fight the good fight every moment

Every minute every day

Fight the good fight every moment

It’s your only way

All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance

Where you’ll fit into the plan

But you’re the master of your own destiny

So give and take the best that you can

You think a little more money can buy your soul some rest

You’d better think of something else instead

You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself

You’d better take a look inside your head

Nothing is easy, nothing good is free

But I can tell you where to start

Take a look inside your heart

There’s an answer in your heart

Fight the good fight every moment

Every minute every day

Fight the good fight every moment

Make it worth the price we pay

Every moment of your lifetime

Every minute every day

Fight the good fight every moment

Make it worth the price we pay
