"We Fought the Fight" by the Dan Burgess Singers?

Post by Brother Jonathan » Sun Dec 21, 2014 1:49 am

Back around 1984, the Dan Burgess Singers had at least one powerful song called "We Fought the Fight".

Some of the lyrics were as follows:

"By faith we live our lives in Jesus, and by faith we seek the promised reward,
We're aliens and strangers to all the things of earth, but in faith we live our lives for the Lord . . ."

And it ended with "Glory to God in the Highest!"

A radio announcer at KFLQ in Albuquerque played that song for me, a time or two, and I've never forgotten how he ministered to me (I won't mention his name, as he is a very modest individual).

Anyway, if anyone can add info as to what happened to the group, or if there is a video (I haven't found one as of yet), I would be grateful indeed.

Thanks in advance for any assistance, and may you ALL have a truly Merry Christmas!

11. We Fought the Fight

By Faith we live our lives to Jesus
And by faith we seek the promised reward
We're aliens and strangers
To all things of earth
But in faith we live our lives for the Lord.

Bu faith we're sure of all we hope for
And by faith we know our lives cannot convey
So with faithful expectation
We look toward the day
When we'll stand before the Lord and say

Chorus
We fought the fight, we ran the race
Then at last,
We'll see Jesus face to face
Our eyes will clear, we'll fin'lly see
That it's only what we've done for Christ
That will last eternally.

We'll claim the crown and gain the prize
Our worship and our praise
Before His throne will rise
And with the saints of all the ages
We will ask the streets of gold
There will be no pain, no sorrow
And we never will grow old

We'll join the angel chorus
Singing praises to our King
We'll shout for joy around the throne
And make the heavens ring.

Glory to God, singing glory to God
Glory to God in the highest. (Repeat Chorus)

In the highest, the highest
Singing glory to God, glory to God,
Glory to God
In the highest, the highest
The highest

Here is a link to someone singing it on youtube. It is very nice but I don't think it is the singer you are looking for. But at least you have the song being sung. I don't know if I've heard it before but I like it!
Thanks for tuning us into this one!
