I take on my sword and shield for the fight that lies before me
I put on my helmet for I know the One who I belong to
I put on my breastplate, it is mine but it don't come from me
I strap on my belt and leather boots for any ground beneath my feet

And I walk out in Your joy
And I hold my head up high
‘Cause I got Your strength inside of me
And my brothers by my side

But I'm holding fast to You

And the battle it is hidden
It ain't fought between two men
And it's out there on the streets
And it's underneath my skin
