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.
Drawing on the LDS doctrine of pre-existence and a war in heaven, this song affirms that we can be armed with divine power now, in this world, to fight our battles and come out triumphant.
Based on 1 Nephi 14:14, see also Ephesians 6:10-18
