The Armor of God

    1. As I sail life’s stormy seas,

    sometimes trials seem to be

    so much more than I can bear.

    But I know my Father cares,

    and he’s there for me.

    Chorus

    With the sword of truth protecting me,

    and the shield of faith, I can be free

    If I hold onto the iron rod

    And proudly wear the armor of God.

    2. I will let my torch shine bright

    as I walk the path of right.

    With my Savior as my friend,

    I will endure to the end,

    just one day at a time.

    Chorus

    3. So with all my heart and soul

    I will strive to reach my goal

    to be worthy and to stand

    on the Father’s right hand,

    and be counted.

    Chorus

    [Second part of chorus—to be sung after verse 3]

    On a battlefield I stand,

    awaiting God’s command.

    A trumpet sounds the call,

    “Come to Jesus, one and all,

    And wear the armor of God.”
