PUT ON THE ARMOUR

Be strong in the Lord, my brother,
In the power of His mighty arm
Trust in the Lord and in no other
And He will protect ye from harm

We wrestle not with man, neither with myth
Nor with flesh and blood do ye strive
But against evil powers of spirit forthwith
Where rulers in darkness do thrive

So, the whole armor of God, take unto thee
To do all that ye can to stand firm
A well-armored Christian on bended knee
Causes demons to tremble and squirm

The Scriptures thou hath known from even your youth
To make ye wise unto salvation ye heard
So stand ye surrounded with the belt of Truth
Encompassed with the surety of His Holy Word

Wearing the breastplate of our High-Priest
His Righteousness is imputed to thee
He is the great and ye are the least
And thus as He walked so shall ye

Prepare ye the way with boots of Peace
Go to the world - the message is dire
To give to His kingdom all due increase
And warn sinners from the lake burning with fire

And take, above all, your Faith as a Shield
We are not ignorant of Satan's own quirks
Quench fiery darts, resist, do not yield
Salvation by Faith and not by your works

Cover thy head with the helmet of salvation
He is the Head  - by Him ye are saved
Remember that Heaven is His habitation
His laws on your heart must be engraved

The two-edged sword of the spirit ye grip
To vanquish thy foes with His Power
The Word of thy God must be on your lip
With prayer and supplication each hour

Keep ye thine mind and thine body from sin
O' keep ye His law as delight
Fight ye the good fight, without and within
And don His whole armor of light.

THE ARMOR OF GOD

Ephesians 6:10-18 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
