81. Put On the Armor

1 Put on the armor of our God,
Be strong to do His will;
Dare not go forth for once unarmed,
Thy foes would do thee ill.

Chorus:
Then stand! stand firm, defy the foe!
Thou in the Master’s strength shalt go,
Enduring to the end
Then stand! stand firm, defy the foe,
Enduring to the end.

2 Put on the armor, girt with truth,
The work is not thine own;
Bind to thy heart the law of God,
Fulfilled by Christ alone. [Chorus]

3 Put on the armor; shod with peace
Thy feet shall firm endure;
Tho’ snares beset and thorns shall pierce,
He makes Thy footsteps sure. [Chorus]

4 Put on the armor; take thy shield,
Faith in the risen Lord;
Once pierced with darts still aimed at thee,
He conquers with a word. [Chorus]
