Lyrics:

Wherefore rejoice in the fullness of time!
When all things are gathered together into one!
Oh gird up your loins and take my armor whole
That the day ye may withstand.

Take the loin cloth of truth, the breast plate of righteousness,
The shoes of preparation of the Gospel of peace.
Take the shield of faith to quench the darts of the wicked,
The helmet of salvation to crown the armor of God.

      Then the sword of my Spirit will I pour out upon you,
      And my word will I reveal; so be faithful 'till I come;
      So be faithful 'till I come, 'till I come, 'till I come!

Oh gird up your loins take my armor whole
That the day ye may withstand.
Take the loincloth of truth, the breastplate of righteousness,
The shoes of preparation of the Gospel of peace.
Take the shield of faith to quench the darts of the wicked,
The helmet of salvation to crown the armor of God.
So that you may withstand the day,

     Gird up your loins, take the armor of God.
     So be faithful 'till I come that you may stand!
     Gird up your loins!
