Armed With Strength

Every one of us is a warrior,
And we have raised our swords before
In defense of truth and light and of liberty
And it’s time to raise our swords once more.

‘Cause we’re engaged in a battle,
And the casualties are climbing every day;
Though the Enemy’s determined to disrupt, destroy us,
He will not have his way! ‘Cause…

CHORUS:
We’re armed with strength, Endowed with power,
And thus prepared, we shall not fear!
Bathed in light, we’ll stand and we’ll fight
Knowing our Captain’s ever near!
And we’re armed with His strength.

With the sword of the Spirit,
We will cut through darkness and we’ll know the way;
With the shield of faith we shall withstand the arrows of fire
That our Foe slings t’wards us every day.
We wear the helmet of salvation;
With preparation and with peace our feet are shod;
With the breastplate of righteousness, our loins girt with truth,
We go forth: The army of the living God!
(REPEAT CHORUS)

We shall withstand the evil day; We shall hold fast in every way.
We shall not fear, For we know He is here:
He reigns among His people!
(REPEAT CHORUS)

Armed with His strength – We shall not fear!
