I love the sound of this intro to The Battle Belongs To The Lord when you vamp from Em to D. You'll see this in the second chord chart posted below. 

Are you familiar with the song? Jamie Owens-Collins wrote it in 1985. Jamie Owens-Collins comes from a musical family, so it’s no surprise that she might also use this medium to tell us her thoughts. Her father Jimmy wrote “Holy, Holy”, and her mother Carol wrote “Freely, Freely”, so we know Jamie observed their lives as musicians and worshipers. 

I'm sure many teams have played this song differently from a slow groove to more upbeat.



Fm Eb Fm
In heavenly armor we'll enter the land
Eb Fm
The battle belongs to the Lord
Eb Fm
No weapon that's fashioned against us will stand
Eb Fm
The battle belongs to the Lord


Eb Fm Eb Db Eb Fm Fm Eb
And we sing glory, ho - nor, power and strength

to the Lord (2x)


When the power of darkness comes in like a flood
The battle belongs to the Lord
He's raised up a standard, the pow'r of His blood
The battle belongs to the Lord


When your enemy pressed in hard do not fear
The battle belongs to the Lord
Take courage, my friend, your redemption is near
The battle belongs to the Lord
