    My Armor is Faith

    My armor faith
    Prayer my shield
    Hope my helm
    Love is my sword.

    protects a nobleman from Diablo's sight.
    After battle he repairs gashes from the fight.
    A knight doesn’t battle without suit of steel. 
    So not he weakened for what the morrow reveal.

    protects a man from despair and doubt.
    Arrows of evil rain upon him, he shouts.
    His shield is strength and bravery of God’s source.
    He raises shield of prayer and continues forth.

    This planet’s Hope proceeds from faith and prayer
    As does the Holy Spirit from Son and Creator.
    He forges into battle with shield, helm, and armor. 
    Then hope for the world will continue, not falter.

    With Christ’s sacrificial Love by his side,
    Not deterred by evil he will collide.
    What’s the purpose of life without love, his sword.
    If he is as the redeemer, the word, the Lord,
    He will help a soul reap the gold, God’s reward.
