Good Warfare of God's War

"The sons of Reuben… cried to God in the battle, and He was entreated of them; because they put their trust in Him… because the war was of God" (1 Chronicles 5:18-22).  "Israel [was] His dominion… Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord" (Psalm 114:2,7).  "Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me… putting me into the ministry… came into the world to save sinners... Now unto the King eternal… be honor and glory forever and ever.  Amen… Timothy… war a good warfare" (1 Timothy 1:12-18). 

There is a war that God is waging
Against this world's false opinion. 
The battle everyday that's raging
Is fought by trusting His dominion. 

This was the case with Israel
When through the wilderness they came.   
The warfare that they fought went well
When they were trusting in His name. 

The Lord enables us to fight,
Outfitted with His Spirit's sword,
Which is His Word that sheds the light
Of saving grace through Christ our Lord. 

O Lord, the warfare of Your war
Is fought to rescue precious souls. 
You are the King we're fighting for
Through Your dominion that controls.
