My 10 Favorite Stryper Songs Of All Time

Jan 06, 2015

Stryper has stood the test of time as a band.  And they have produced many amazing studio albums.  Michael Sweet’s vocals are still so awesome today.  Have you listened to their newest album, No More Hell To Pay, yet?  Do your ears a favor and pick this one up!  It is really good!  There really isn’t anything new that I can say about this band.  Their lyrics, drums, guitar licks/solos and commitment to Christ are solid!  Here are my top 10 favorite songs of theirs with some of my favorite lyrics for each!  Enjoy!

10. Loud ‘N’ Clear, The Yellow And Black Attack

Favorite Lyric

“At least we can say we love doin' what we do.  And we're here to say that you can have salvation too!”

9. Make You Mine, Reborn

Favorite Lyric

“But I walked away, left You to stay, with no explanation.  Now I realize my darkened skies won't shine without Your light.  Will You forgive me?  Can You forget the old me?  If You let me I want to make You mine.”

8. Murder By Pride, Murder By Pride

Favorite Lyric

“Seeds that were growing have been dried up by my flesh.  I walk the walk and talk the talk but where's the rest?  I could have everything, even what's behind the stars!  But I built my prison without windows, without bars.”

7. Lonely, In God We Trust

Favorite Lyric

“I was lonely, lost without Your love, sad and lonely without You.  You’re the only One that I'll ever love!  I need You!”

6. Saved By Love, No More Hell To Pay

Favorite Lyric

“We can’t forget, what brought us this far.  It’s heaven sent, beyond the big star.  Just when we’re feeling that we’re going down, we can’t go on anymore – we’re restored!”

5. Surrender, Soldiers Under Command

Favorite Lyric

“Christ is the lover of your soul and He wants to give you all you need!  So freely surrender to the King!”

4. Rockin’ The World, To Hell With The Devil

Favorite Lyric

“We are rockin' the world for You, Holy One!  Rockin' the world for You, and Your son!”

3. Carry On My Wayward Son, The Covering

This amazing cover originally done by Kansas blew me away!  They nail it but still make it their own version.  This entire album is devoted to cover songs.  I also enjoyed their versions of Blackout by the Scorpions and The Trooper by Iron Maiden on this one!

Favorite Lyric –

“Carry on my wayward son.  There'll be peace when you are done.  Lay your weary head to rest.  Don't you cry no more.”

2. To Hell With The Devil, To Hell With The Devil

I usually only post full lyrics to my number one song but I love this song so much so I had to include them all for this one also.  The devil is powerless when it comes to Christ!  To hell with the devil!

Speak of the devil
He's no friend of mine
To turn from him is what we’ve got in mind

Just a liar and a thief
The word tells us so
We like to let him know
Where he can go

To hell with the devil
To hell with the devil

When things are going wrong
You know who to blame
He will always live
Up to his name

He's never been the answer
There's a better way
We are here to rock you
And to say...

To hell with the devil
To hell with the devil

1. Soldiers Under Command, Soldiers Under Command

This is actually the first song I heard by Stryper.  And I fell in love with their sound from the get go.  Here are the lyrics for the entire song!

We are the soldiers under God's command
We hold His two-edged sword within our hands
We're not ashamed to stand up for what's right
We win without sin, it's not by our might
And we're fighting all the sin
And the good book -- it says we'll win!

Soldiers, Soldiers, under command
Soldiers, Soldiers, fighting the Lord’s battle plan

Are you a soldier under God's command
Help fight the good fight, join us while you can
The battle that's waiting is fought so easily
Through Him, without sin there is victory
And were fighting all the sin
And the good book -- it says we'll win!

Soldiers, Soldiers, under command
Soldiers, Soldiers, fighting the Lord’s battle plan

Soldiers, Soldiers, under command
Soldiers, Soldiers, fighting the Lord’s battle plan

The Lord’s battle plan!

Conclusion

These are my top 10 favorite songs by Stryper.  This band has changed many people’s lives, including my own.  May God continue to bless them as they keep rocking for the One true Rock!
