I Put On Christ (The Battle is Raging) - Laura Hackett LYRICS
I just love this song! I had to share it with whoever would listen!
Here are the lyrics:
Jesus Christ who gave himself for our sins That he might deliver us from this present evil age...
For the battle is raging The devil is raging And I don't want to be sleeping While the battle is raging For my spirit is willing But my flesh gets tempted Rise up, my soul, and start praying 'Cause I don't want to be defenseless
I don't fight as one beats the air Give me eyes to see and ears to hear (repeat 3x)
(repeat: For the battle is raging...)
(repeat: I don't fight...)
I put on Christ Make no provision for my flesh Put on the whole armor of God Leave no open door to darkness And I take the scroll I eat the scroll I open up my mouth And speak forth Your word And I take the sword of the spirit (repeat)
Blessed be the Lord my Rock Who trains my hands for battle Who trains my hands for war (repeat 3x)
(sweet guitar solo)
I don't fight as one beats the air I have eyes to see and ear to hear (repeat 2x)
It doesn't have to be a blind battle 'Cause I have the mind of Christ
