232. 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.

Refrain:
In the mighty name of Jesus,
Ever lift up the shield of faith;
Wield the sword of truth, my brother,
Heav’n will crown thy fight of faith.

2 Faith is mighty and will conquer,
Bind it firmly on thy heart;
On the hottest field of battle
Thou shalt 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]
