1. now the champion marched for forty days,
saying ‘give me a man to fight.’
the israelite said ‘i’ve got a great heart,
‘but my feet are full of fright.’
then a boy with a sling and a pocket full of rocks,
he had to trust and pray.
he said, ‘run if you want to, run if you will,
‘but i came here to stay.’

chorus:
run if you want to, run if you will,
but i came here to stay.
if i fall down i’m gonna get right up.
because i didn’t start out to play.

it’s a battlefield, brother,
not a recreation room.

it’s a fight, it’s not a game.
so run if you want to, run if you will,
but i came here to stay.

2. now the boys wouldn’t bow,
and the king got mad.
he said, ‘turn that furnace up high;
‘tie them up, throw them in,
‘those hebrew boys are gonna fry.’
but a little while later he looked in the furnace,
and he heard brother shadrach say,
‘just pull up your chair and warm your hands,
‘cuz we came here to stay.’

chorus:
run if you want to, run if you will,
but i came here to stay.
if i fall down i’m gonna get right up.
because i didn’t start out to play.

it’s a battlefield, brother,
not a recreation room.

it’s a fight, it’s not a game.
so run if you want to, run if you will,
but i came here to stay.

3. the decree had been signed by the hand of the king.
daniel couldn’t talk to his lord.
the hungry lions were pacing him in:
here comes supper again.
but if you’da been standing anywhere near,
you’da heard brother daniel say,
‘if you’re talking about me, just forget it, boys,
‘cuz i came here to stay.’

chorus:
run if you want to, run if you will,
but i came here to stay.
if i fall down i’m gonna get right up.
because i didn’t start out to play.

it’s a battlefield, brother,
not a recreation room.

it’s a fight, it’s not a game.
so run if you want to, run if you will,
but i came here to stay.

4. now in these days there’s a whole lot of christians,
who just won’t take their stand.
they try to straddle the fence, and play
both sides if they can.
but i thank god for those folks i meet,
who aren’t ashamed to say,
‘i’m a fundamental, premillenial, independent baptist,
‘and i’m gonna stay that way.’
chorus (2x)
