Put on the armour!


“Put on the armor!” – Transmission

I have read of men of faith
Who have bravely fought till death,
Who now the crown of life are wearing;
Then the thought occurs to me,
Can I not a soldier be,
Like to those martyrs bold and daring?

And like them, I’ll take my stand
With the sword of God in hand,
Smiling amid opposing legions;
And the victor’s crown I’ll gain,
And at last go home to reign
In Heaven’s bright and sunny regions.

Chorus
I’ll put on the armour and rush to the field,
Determined to conquer, and never to yield;
So the enemy will know, Wheresoever I may go,
That I am fighting for Jehovah.

I will join at once the fight,
Leaning on my Saviour’s might,
He is almighty to deliver;
From my post I Will not shrink,
Though of death’s cup I should drink;
Hell to defeat is my endeavor.

Chorus
I’ll put on the armour and rush to the field,
Determined to conquer, and never to yield;
So the enemy will know, Wheresoever I may go,
That I am fighting for Jehovah.

Will you not enlist with me,
And a valiant soldier be?
It’s vain to waste your time in slumber;
Jesus calls for men of war
Who will fight for evermore,
Routing the foe in fear and wonder.

Chorus
Now put on the armour and rush to the field,
Determined to conquer, and never to yield;
So the enemy will know, Wheresoever I may go,
That I am fighting for Jehovah.

  1. I have been looking for this song for quite some time! I was trying to find it to use in our service on Sunday, and almost gave up. Praise God for His perfect plan and provision!

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
