Lyrics: Verse 1
When I wake up in the morning
And get ready for my day,
I’m glad when I remember
To stop and pray right away
For I can't be my best
Without the breastplate of righteousness;
The helmet of salvation
Keeps my thoughts free from temptation.
When I hold up the shield of faith,
The Lord is watching, keeping me safe:
When I pray to Heav’nly Father as I ought,
I put on the whole armor of God.

Verse 2
When I’m going and I’m coming,
When I work and when I play,
It's the Word of God I ponder
And do my best to obey.
For I’ve learned in my youth
The need for girding myself with truth;
I wield the sword of Spirit,
With each prompting as I hear it.
I know the Lord will guide my feet
When I walk with the gospel of peace:
When I read and heed the scriptures as I ought,
I put on the whole armor of God.
