    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.”
