soldier-praying

Through Christ…

.

The worldly must admit they’re wrong,

The weakest man is made the strong,

The timid man is made secure, 

The vilest man is made the pure,

The wildest man is cool and tempered,

The forgotten man is much remembered,

.

And he who prays fights on the field;

Oh, righteous armor, oh, faithful shield,

Oh, let this soldier never yield,

Oh, let this Sword of God I wield,

Through Jesus Christ who saves,

Be evermore that which reveals

Who were the bold, who were the brave.

.

(Yet still, oh God, its thee I crave!)

.
