Arm me for Battle

Arm me for battle, Lord, that I may fight

the battles facing soldiers blessed with ease:

the callousness within my soul toward light

that hardens all the ground sins’ battles seize;

a mind recalcitrant and sharp with doubt

that you would ever answer my complaint;

the stab of fear that all I’ve learned about

your goodness, Lord, was nothing but a feint;

The shafts of anger I can never change

the circumstances You’ve prepared me for;

the hammer blows whenever I arrange

to do Your will but find You’ve shut the door.

Arm me for battle, Lord, that I may view

Your sovereign power turning me to You.
