When we fight to obtain justice
We’re passionate in our plea,
To reveal the facts and expose the lies
So the truth it will set free.
When we approach all situations
With good conscience and sincere faith,
We can engage in good warfare
And we run the noble race.
But how can we be sure
That our fight is honourable,
When our motives and desires
Can at times have us fooled?
As we may sometimes fight for causes
So our duty is fulfilled,
But unless God gets the glory
Its perhaps in vain and outside His will.
It’s God’s standards that do matter
As to what is wrong and right,
And this should be our benchmark
As to which battles we should fight.
It’s all the godly family values
And the sanctity of all life,
That’s always worth fighting for
To avoid potential strife.
The breastplate of righteousness
Coupled with the shield of faith,
Protect us from the fiery arrows
And point to right action we should take.
The helmet of salvation
Protects our mind and thoughts,
As the sword of the spirit
Slays heresy of every sort.
When we gird our waist with truth
And share the gospel of peace,
We freely release the good news
So from bondage souls are released.
The good fight is imperative
If we wish to overcome,
All temptations and ungodly desires
To ensure the battle is won.
