The Simple Life

The Battle Hour


Prepare a war

Proclaim this among the nations

Rouse the mighty men

Let all the soldiers draw near

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

I am in the battlefield

I am a work in progress

I am a pilgrim on a journey

I am being perfected daily

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

I discipline my body

I bring it into subjection

lest, when I have preached to others

I find myself disqualified

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

I contend with all arguments

Counter all presuppositions

Bring every thought into captive obedience to Christ

Remove all that exalts itself above the knowledge of God

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

Blessed be the Lord,

My rock and strong tower

He trains my hands for war

And my fingers for battle

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

For He has built me up

Girded me with strength for battle

He has subdued under me

Those who rise up against me

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

O God the Lord,

The strength of my salvation

The guide to my every move

The cover of my head in the day of battle

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

Contend, O Lord,

with those who contend with me

Fight against those who fight against me

Go forth and fights in the day of battle

The battle belongs to the Lord

========

Oh Lord go forth like a warrior

Arouse Your zeal like a man of war

Utter a shout, yes, raise a war cry

Prevail against Your enemies.

The battle belongs to You oh Lord

========
