Verse 1

When I wake up in the morning

And get ready for my day,

I’m glad when I remember

To stop and pray right away

For I can't be my best

Without the breastplate of righteousness;

The helmet of salvation

Keeps my thoughts free from temptation.

When I hold up the shield of faith,

The Lord is watching, keeping me safe:

When I pray to Heav’nly Father as I ought,

I put on the whole armor of God.


Verse 2

When I’m going and I’m coming,

When I work and when I play,

It's the Word of God I ponder

And do my best to obey.

For I’ve learned in my youth

The need for girding myself with truth;

I wield the sword of Spirit,

With each prompting as I hear it.

I know the Lord will guide my feet

When I walk with the gospel of peace:

When I read and heed the scriptures as I ought,

I put on the whole armor of God.
