The Battle Belongs To The Lord ~ hymn

This song is not that old, as are most of what I share but I chose this one after singing it on Sunday as it reminds, every time I sing or hear it, of the joy of a child. You might ask why since it is battle song. So, I’ll share the “why” with you.

When we lived in a small town and our oldest child was just a couple of years old, this was a song that was sung fairly often in the congregation that we attended. She picked it up quickly and it became her absolute favorite song for a while. She would sing it at the top of her lungs, with gusto and feeling, whether in services or at home. I can still hear her – And we sing glory, honor, power and strength to the Lord. . .

Whenever I hear this song again, I consider whether my emotion fits what hers was at that time. No, she didn’t really understand what she was singing about other than she was singing to the Lord. But, she gave it her all to the point of her understanding. And isn’t that what I should be doing? Giving my all to God, to the point of my understanding? Am I? I’ll be considering that today.

Blessings,
Lori, At Home.

The Battle Belongs to the Lord

Jamie Owens-Collins (1985)

In heavenly armour we’ll enter the land
The battle belongs to the Lord.
No weapon that’s fashioned against us shall stand
The battle belongs to the Lord.

And we sing glory, honor,
Power, and strength to the Lord.
We sing glory, honor,
Power, and strength to the Lord.

The power of darkness comes in like a flood
The battle belongs to the Lord.
He’s raised up a standard, the power of His blood
The battle belongs to the Lord.

And we sing glory, honor,
Power, and strength to the Lord.
We sing glory, honor,
Power, and strength to the Lord.

When your enemy presses in hard do not fear
The battle belongs to the Lord.
Take courage my friend, your redemption is near
The battle belongs to the Lord.

And we sing glory, honor,
Power, and strength to the Lord.
We sing glory, honor,
Power, and strength to the Lord.
