Lyrics

LIVE BY THE SWORD DIE BY THE SWORD

 (Words and Music by Tennyson Walters)

 History should be our teacher

God’s Word our faithful messenger

Guiding us in the right direction

Away from killing and destruction

Yet we choose to submit

To unending wars and conflict

Participants in an unholy marathon

Going on and on and on and on

 

Them that live by the sword

Shall die by the sword

Them that live by the Word

Them He shall preserve

It’s the meek

That shall inherit the earth

Stop the streak

Of killing and hurt

 

Oh nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

 

Destiny cannot be breached

The Hand of God will always reach

When Peter cut off the soldier’s ear

Jesus healed him and made it clear

Vengeance is mine saith the Lord

I alone decide who stands and falls

No weapon formed shall ever prosper

The end thereof is always disaster

 

  

Them that live by the sword

Shall die by the sword

Them that live by the Word

Them He shall preserve

It’s the meek

That shall inherit the earth

Stop the streak

Of killing and hurt

 

We have got to stop the killing and hurt

No more killing

Oh No

We have got to stop the killing and hurt

OOH Yeah

 

Thou shalt not kill

That is God’s will

He commands you today

Stop your evil ways

Murderers will face Hell’s fire

An inescapable quagmire

 

Them that live by the sword

Shall die by the sword

Them that live by the Word

Them He shall preserve

It’s the meek

That shall inherit the earth

Stop the streak

Of killing and hurt (REPEAT)
