The Battle is Not Ours is the main theme of the VeggieTales episode Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen.

It is a reprise of The Battle Prelude and Tell Me Why. Esther sings the first phase of this when she gets taken to Xerxes' palace by Haman. Esther sings this again in response to her cousin Mordecai's request to speak to Xerxes for her family's life. Although Esther initially remains afraid, becomes unsure of what she should do, she later realizes as long as God is on her side, she should never be afraid to do the right thing.

Lyrics

Tell me why, I don't understand

Tell me why, or show me your hand

Tell me why because I can't see my way through

What now...should I...do

(music plays; then drums play)

The battle is not ours

We look to God above

For He will guide us safely through

and guard us with His love

I will not be afraid

I will not run and hide

For there is nothing I can't face

when God is at my side

No, there is nothing I can't face

when God is at my side

The battle is not ours

We look to God above

For He will guide us safely through

and guard us with His love
