Armor Of God
While the fierce battle rages on;
We wrestle not against flesh and blood,
We are at war with Satan 'til he is gone.
We must stand firm with the belt of truth,
Then resist every attack of the enemy;
The wicked one will tremble and leave,
We will still be standing and free.
Wear the breastplate of righteousness,
Keep this on and wear it in place;
It turns away every attack the devil makes,
Be faithful to God and win this race.
Let your feet be prepared for this battle,
There's a great need for the Gospel of Peace;
Be bold and stand for what is right,
Keep pressing on 'til this battle shall cease.
Take the shield of faith and be strong,
Quench all fiery darts of the wicked one;
Use each piece of the whole Armor of God,
Stop every arrow aimed 'til Victory you've won.
Take the helmet of Salvation and wear it,
Take the Sword of the Spirit ~ the Bible;
It is the Word of God to feed our soul,
Be alert, watch and pray ~ don't be idle.
A new Child of God needs love and patience,
As a newborn baby needs milk to drink;
Each ~ needs nourishment and training,
There must be trust and faith to not shrink.
If there be any virtue or any praise,
Think about these things today;
There is power if we wear all of God's Armor,
We must be faithful and not forget to pray.
