The Blessed Battle

Despite our many toils and dangers
We are still aliens and strangers
The world we live in is not our own
Yet we’re to bloom where we’ve been sown

Though we live in the world the war we wage
Is not as  world does-as nations rage
The battle is waged within our souls
We fight with the weapons the Spirit controls

Chorus:
Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed
Tremble not at this great horde,
For the battle is not yours but the Lords
So as we lift our righteous swords
We know the battle is the Lord’s

The weapons of the world cannot win
Against our own indwelling sin
But resurrection power avails
To overcome where our might fails

The weapons of the world cannot begin
To defeat the monarch of dead men.
But Christ has won the victory
And so from Sin we are set free.

Bridge:
Taking captive every thought
A prisoner of the war  that is fought
Not by power, nor by might,
but by the Spirit we fight the good fight

Chorus:
Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed
Tremble not at this great horde,
For the price is not yours to pay
So as we lift our righteous swords
We know the battle is the Lord’s
