The Armor of God (Behold A Royal Army)

We're putting on the armor of God,
the armor of God!

(Behold A Royal Army)
Behold A Royal Army,
With banner, sword, and shield,
Is marching forth to conquer
On life's great battle field.
It's ranks are filled with soldiers,
United, bold, and strong,
Who follow their Commander
and sing their joyful song:

Victory, Victory,
Thru him that redeemed us!
Victory, Victory,
Thru Jesus Christ, our Lord!
Victory, Victory, Victory,
Thru Jesus Christ, our Lord!

(True to the Faith)
Shall the youth of Zion falter
In defending truth and right?
While the enemy assaileth,
Shall we shrink or shun the fight?
True to the faith that our parents have cherished,
True to the truth for which martyrs have perished,
To God's command,
Soul, heart, and hand,
Faithful and true we will ever stand.

(Hope of Israel)
Hope of Israel Zion's army,
Children of the promised day,
See, the Chieftain signals onward,
And the battle's in array!
Hope of Israel, rise in might
With the sword of truth and right;
Sound the warcry, "Watch and pray!"
Vanquich ev'ry foe today.
In our armor, in our might,
with our swords of truth and light
Armed with courage we will pray,
Help us Lord so that we can say,

Victory, Victory, Victory,
Thru Jesus Christ, our Lord.
(Our Lord)
