Faithful Fighter

"Our God shall fight for us" (Nehemiah 4:20).  "Show Thy marvelous lovingkindness, O Thou that savest by Thy right hand them which put their trust in Thee from those that rise up against them.  Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of Thy wings" (Psalm 17:7,8).  "The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe" (Proverbs 18:10).  "Deliver us from evil: for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen" (Matthew 6:13). 

The Lord our God shall fight for us,
As faithfully as in the past
When He emerged victorious
Upon the cross for us at last. 

The Lord of lords, the King of kings,
Who rose triumphant from the grave,
Now shelters us beneath His wings,
Assuring us He lives to save. 

His name is like a mighty tower
Wherein we run with confidence
Because He saved us by His power,
And He is still our strong Defense.  

O Lord of love, our truest Friend,
Our Hero who from heaven came,
Our faithful Fighter to the end,
We love You and exalt Your name!
