10854. The Shield Of Faith

1 Take the shield of faith, my brother,
Hold it boldly in the light;
And its awful burnished glory
Will put every foe to flight.

In the mighty name of Jesus,
Ever lift up the shield of faith;
Wield the sword of truth, my brother,
Heaven will crown thy fight of faith.

2 Faith is mighty and will conquer,
Bind it firmly on thy heart;
On the hottest field of batle,
Thou wilt quench the vilest dart. [Refrain]

3 And when trouble specters round thee,
Come, thy spirit to depress,
Lift the shield of faith abounding,
And thy soul shall calmly rest. [Refrain]

4 Then put on the holy armor,
And defy the tempting throng,
Over all the foes that gather,
Shout and sing the victor’s song. [Refrain]
