Representative Text

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.

Then stand! stand firm! defy the foe!
Thou in the Master's strength shall 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. [Refrain]

3. Put on the armor; shod with peace
Thy feet shall firm endure;
Though snares beset and thorns may pierce,
He makes thy footsteps sure. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
