Trembling before the obstacles,
While adversaries advance;
Depression, Fear, Failure, the like —
Make up the foreboding circumference.
The taunts, the laughter, the endless lies
That you would be better off dead;
The mockery shatters the silence,
And keeps echoing inside your head.
Oh timid one, do not cave to the voices,
But let the Warrior within arise;
Be armed with the Armor, held securely by Truth,
And know your Help comes from on high!
Know that defeat is not your destiny,
Rather, Victory is to be your fate;
Lift high His banner, sound loud His truth,
Each lie annihilate!
Behold, your comrades stand beside,
Hope to your left, and Faith on your right;
Just when it seems that all is darkness,
You’ll find that the Lord remains your Light!
Rise up, oh mighty Warrior,
Fixate on Him who is Faithful and True —
Your Defender, your Shield, your God
Who securely watches over you!
Though your enemies vehemently advance,
In Christ, Warrior, take your stand;
And if you stumble e’en seven times,
He will mightily uphold you in His hand!
