11942. Buckle On The Armor

1 Life is one continued battle,
Never ended, never o’er;
And the Christian’s path to glory
Is a conflict evermore.

Christian, buckle on thy armor,
Let the weak points strengthened be;
Fight thy fight—all Heav’n shall greet thee
In the hour of victory.

2 Satan ever watches round him,
Seeks to find the weakest part,
And in moments most unheeded,
Quickly throws his fiery dart. [Refrain]

3 If perchance thy heart grows weary
With the struggle and the fight,
And the day seems dark and dreary,
Little sunshine, little light: [Refrain]

4 Be that light but faint and feeble,
It shall guide thee evermore,
And at every battle leave thee
Stronger than thou wast before. [Refrain]
