Psalm 144:1. 1 2. First Part
Assistance and victory in the spiritual warfare.
For ever blessed be the Lord,
My Saviour and my shield;
He sends his Spirit with his word
To arm me for the field.
When sin and hell their force unite,
He makes my soul his care,
Instructs me to the heavenly fight,
And guards me thro’ the war.
A friend and helper so divine
Doth my weak courage raise;
He makes the glorious victory mine,
And his shall be the praise.
