The Code says the original language should be closest to the music so it would be on the second line.  When in-accords are used the first line is listed first and the original language second.

Usually the translation is on top and the original is on the bottom. In the music, there is an in accord sign in-between two similar lines of notes. I'm wondering what side of the in accord sign I play for what? up to this point I was always matching the first half with the original or the second line of lyrics, but it just hit me that mathematical logic dictates that the second half should be matched with the second line of lyrics.
