Assistance and Victory in Spiritual Warfare. Ps. 55. 18

I. Watts                          C.M.

1
For ever blessèd be the Lord,
My Saviour and my shield;
He sends his Spirit with his word,
To arm me for the field.

2
When sin and hell their force unite,
He makes my soul his care;
Instructs me to the heavenly fight,
And guards me through the war.

3
A Friend and Helper so divine,
Does my weak courage raise;
He makes the glorious victory mine,
And his shall be the praise.
