The Fight – Deuteronomy 20:4

The Fight – Deuteronomy 20:4

Who fights for the broken
Battles for the lost
Who goes before the fearing
Comforts the beaten
Only One goes before
Only One battles for all
The Lord our God
Delivers the broken
Only the Lord our God
Fights for us all

To The Battle – Numbers 14:8-9

To The Battle – Numbers 14:8-9

Is there a place where I should be
A place You’re trying to lead me
To get there will there be battles?
For now I am afraid to fight
Do they guard the home You have for me?
To keep me from Your promise
And how will I break through their sentry?
To take the promise You have for me
Lord, lead me into this battle
Be my shield, my armour, my sword
With their scorn they won’t defeat me
If I have Your words to return
So lead me Lord and protect me
Be at my side as I fight through their lines
Until I reach the promise You have for me
And dwell in these blessed lands

Numbers 14:8-9

The Fight

The Fight

If He believes in me
Why can’t I see it
If He believes in us
How can we fail
An army at His calling
Bound to stand together
Yet still I feel I stand alone
Holding back
While His soldiers advance
I know I wear His armour
I know I carry His sword
Yet still I wait on something more
Before I start to take up this fight
Still David stood before Goliath
With no armour
Just a sling
And now I stand here with far more
Still waiting for the battle to begin
Yet before me it rages on
And I feel I still refuse to fight
But if He believes in me
Who am I not to advance
If He goes before me
Who can stand against
No giant
No great army
My Lord is at my side
So here today I pledge
It’s time to take up the fight

Your Fight (Exodus 14:14)

Your Fight (Exodus 14:14)

Let the night be quiet
See the chaos fall to sleep
There is One who goes before you
There is One to fight your fight
So rest tonight in His peace
Lay still and let Him take to battle
For tonight you are not alone
The Lord is at your side
So rest my friend
Let Him fight

Exodus 14:14

To Battle

To Battle

I am called a soldier
The one to fight on
Once forgot by time
Now called to arms by the one

To take up my armour
For the battle each day
To conquer the Giants
That stand in my way

With my God before
Who could come against me
And with Christ within
I fight assured by His victory

Heavenly Army (Psalm 20:7)

Heavenly Army (Psalm 20:7)

With heavy hearts
Battled for so long
Trusted in our fabricated armies
Slowly defeated by hopeless lives
Down and beaten
We surrendered

Until the Lord came
With His heavenly army
Surrounding us amidst the battle
A shield from our enemies
Our strength in the fight
Until our victory was proclaimed

Psalm 20:7

The Battlefield (Joshua 10:12-14)

The Battlefield (Joshua 10:12-14)

Is your battle running it’s course
Or as your day fades
Does it still rage on
As night comes is victory close
Or does your heart
Call you to withdraw

Yet you can’t face this all again
Here you call for it all to end
Upon your knees you make your cry
Our Lord, the Father hears your call
Upon your battlefield He’s at your side

Maybe this day will be stilled
So this battle will end before the night
Or maybe it will start again tomorrow

But know this…

That whenever the night comes
Or the new day begins
Our Lord is there by your side
And He will fight your every battle
Until there is peace for you in the night

Joshua 10:12-14

The Storm, The Trial, The Battle

The Storm, The Trial, The Battle (Deuteronomy 31:8)

When the storm comes
Have no fear
The Lord, our God
Will go before you

In the face of the trial
Do not be downtrodden
The Lord, our God
Will be by your side

As the battle rages
Do not despair
The Lord, our God
Will fight for you

Deuteronomy 31:8

Deuteronomy 31:8

Battles End

Battles End (Joshua 10:12-14)

Here I stand
As another night comes
A darkness falls
And for now my battle ends
Weary and wounded
I fall to my knees
For tomorrow I will fight again

So here I pray
My Lord let the darkness not come
Let this day never fade
And the glorious sun shine to the end
Until this battle is won
When all I fear is defeated
And I will never have to fight again

Joshua 10:12-14

Broken Arrows

Broken Arrows

The arrow’s flown
It’s hit it’s mark
Opening wounds that shouldn’t be there
Deep below the skin
A fragile soul is torn
You see in their eyes
The anger which they strung their bow
As the words become the arrows
Which collide with your soul over and over again
To your knees you slip

A tiny tear falls
As another wells
The arrows still fly
The wounds become deep
So, so deep
Then they stop
They strike no more
Suspended in the air before
Beaten back by a word
A shield from heaven

The Father has spoken
His word into your life
His word your shield
His word binds the wounds
His word wipes the tear
And lifts you to your feet

Then here you stand
Immersed deep within His word
Triumphant in His glory
Defiant against their words
An army couldn’t break you now
For you are His
And He has already won
The blood of the Son has overcome

They will run
Broken arrows all spent
Today you have victory
And tomorrow will be the same
They will try again
Once more their words their arrows
You stay within His word
Victory assured
With Him then you’ll walk
Far beyond this field of broken arrows
