Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.@Ephesians 6:11

San Fran­cis­co John H. Ten­ney, 1890 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Gird on the sword and armor,
Go raise the banner high,
The Captain of salvation
To thee is ever nigh.


Then wave the glorious banner,
Press forward in His name;
And soon thy guide and captain
Will victory proclaim.

Gird on the sword and armor,
Let faith be thy strong shield;
His promise shall sustain thee
On every battlefield.


Gird on the sword and armor,
Press on the foe to fight;
No enemy can harm thee,
For God sustains the right.
