Finley Lyon (🔊 pdf nwc).

Put on the whole armor, the armor of God,
And fight the good fight of faith;
For Jesus is Captain, and you doth He call
To stand in His name till death.

Refrain

Put on the armor of God,
Fight ye the good fight of faith;
Go forth for Jesus your Lord,
And stand in His name till death.

Put on the whole armor, the armor of God,
For powers of hell oppose,
And deadly and dark at each unguarded step,
Are lying in wait your foes.

Refrain

Put on the whole armor, the armor of God,
And taking His Word in hand,
Be instant and earnest in watching and prayer,
And, having done all, to stand.

Refrain

Put on the whole armor, the armor of God,
And hardness thro’ all endure;
Look up to the prize of your calling so high,
The triumph at last so sure.

Refrain
