1Here we stand to face the combat,
Grasp the shield and wield the sword,
Here we buckle on the armor
For the warfare of the Lord.
2Here the great “I do” in earnest
Rings in unison today;
Here we swear that we will follow
One Who leads us all the way.
3God, our Father, give the answer
To Thy faithful ones today;
Not without a blessing from Thee
Shall we dare to go away.
4Not with armor yet unproven
Shall we enter on the fight,
But the weapon of our warfare
Is the Spirit’s Sword of Might.
5Cleanse us ere we leave Thy temple,
Kindle in our heart the flame,
Quickening all the life we offer,
As we call upon Thy Name. Amen.
1 Kings18:24And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
