All the while in sorrow and pain That long armed claw reachng out to steal What is rightfully mine Only by the word of my Father and His son that I am joint heir And have only a work, and a journey, and a destiny here To bring me back to them who sent me here I lay down my weapons and take up His My standard proclaiming "Jesus' Exchanging faith for hopelessness Certainty of Salvation for wandering Breast plate of sin for righteousness that is only His And speak in boldness with a sword of the Word to the demons in the darkness Placing the gospel of Peace on my feet Those shoes leadimg me to the cry of the spirit that reaches Heaven through darkness, Soaring into the plain light of the throne, and Heard So that the shout of victory descends in increasing crescendo Through the ranks of Angels assigned to fight my cause In the fierce battle field Where the enemy tries to take me with force. And then just as the fire of the war rages, and the battle field seems so full of scars It is left with only the wandering,ministering angels Who bind up wounds in His blessed name The demons fleeing to some other cause, not daring to return And I wonder If I could see the battle in the Heavens raging The fights that were fought and the battles won Because here below I bowed the knee And cried out in helplessness, God help me Would I be encouraged for the future fights? Would I understand more of Heavenly rights Grow nearer to my destiny? Hold the cross closer for future gain? Live more for Him then than in Him now? Would I who dimly in that mirror see Love Him more? Than now in adversity. and allow Him to do more in the weeping times? I do not know, but when in prayer When my spirit seems to soar I sometimes understand where the angels are And how many more there are in each fight than me The mirror below is dim, but the one above is clear And through that veil He is there waiting With open arms to give me joy And set me down to dance with angels I think I finally understand I am the general and He the King If I obey His command The battle rages only till it is won In certain victory; it lies with me in Him My response determines the length of the war And the heat of the battle fire.
