Stand in the gap, stand firm, and stay strong;
Not wise in your eyes – be humble with song;
For God in His glory, His wisdom and might,
Will hold you upright,
To His utmost delight!
We are His warriors who fight and do battle;
This call is for all who take action – no prattle;
We take up our shield and handle our sword,
And gain a reward,
As we stand with our Lord!
Our statement is thus: We are never ashamed;
To defend and depend on He who was blamed;
He chose to show mercy and even be nice,
To pay the full price,
For our sin to suffice!
Jesus is Lord, my King, and my Guide;
In whom I resume to rest and reside;
In living by faith, and never by sight;
He lends me His light,
And the power to fight!
Most important is this: The work that we do;
We pray as we stay in His love to pursue;
The wicked and evil, so all that remains,
Are heavenly gains,
For persistence’s claims!
