The Battle is Over

The battle is already over,
The fighting is already done,
Jesus is already the winner,
The battle is already won.

I donít understand why Iím fighting,
All of this sin, grief and despair.
When my Bible tells me the battle,
Is already won by the Heir.
The Heir to the crown of His glory,
A Prince of all Princes, you see,
The One who shares all of His spoils,
With worthless, poor sinners like me.

So if the battle's already over,
The fighting is already done,
If He is already the winner,
Iím fighting a battle thatís won.

So why am I so tired and weary,
Still fighting with all of my might?
How come Iím not dancing in glory,
With Jesus all day and all night?
Itís because Iím not in my armour,
With the shield of faith in my hand,
Godís Word is my Sword and protector,
My strength in this dark evil land.

But the battle's already over,
The fighting is already done,
Jesus is already the winner,
My battle is already won.

So Iíll spend more time singing praises,
And far less time fighting the foe,
And Iíll thank Him a lot more often,
For blessings that easily flow.
And Iíll put on all of my armour,
And Iíll praise Him all of my days,
And Iíll raise my arms up in worship,
Obey Him and follow His ways.

Stop fighting, the battle is over,
The fighting's already been done.
And Jesus my Lord is the winner,
Stop fighting, the battle is won.
