264a. Assistance and Victory in the spiritual Warfare

1 For ever blessed be the Lord,
My Saviour and my Shield;
He sends his Spirit with his Word,
To arm me for the Field.

2 When Sin and Hell their Force unite,
He makes my Soul his Care,
Instructs me to the heav'nly Fight,
And guards me through the War.

3 A Friend and Helper so divine
Does my weak Courage raise;
He makes the glorious Vict'ry mine,
And his shall be the Praise.
