I’m battle-ready – bring it on!
I fear no dark or hellish throng,
For by my side is God The Son,
So this war is already won!
In Jesus I know I can’t lose,
I fight with weapons that He’ll choose,
I trust Him with faith strong and true,
For know He died to pay MY dues.
My feet stand on the cornerstone,
A soul prepared in love is honed,
‘though human bravery has flown,
My spirit’s strength’s from Heaven’s throne.
Emboldened, unafraid I feel,
Dressed top to toe in divine steel,
God’s armour’s forged with Holy seal,
His succour and great power are real.
I wield His shield and mighty sword,
To defend from un-godly hoards,
‘though trials and battles leave me sore,
No wounds will fester or stay raw.
For God will keep me fighting-on,
And Jesus makes me new and strong,
I’ll stand firm ‘til I join the throng,
In Heaven, where my soul belongs.
