The Battle

The Battle

In the face of the devil, You told me to prepare for battle.
I summoned my anger and called on my vengeance.
I stood before You and said I was ready.
You told me, not yet.

In the face of the devil, You told me to prepare for battle.
I summoned my friends and called on rumor and gossip.
I stood before You and said I was ready.
You told me, not yet.

In the face of the devil, You told me to prepare for battle.
I summoned my tears and called on my fear.
I stood before You and said I was ready.
You told me, not yet.

In the face of the devil, You told me to prepare for battle.
I summoned the Lord and called Your name.
I knelt before You and asked if I was ready.
You gave me Your shield and armour.

For in the face of the devil, You fought my battle.
