GEAR UP THE CHURCH

Lyrics & Music by: Roy Zachry





Put on your armor, don't leave a crack
For Satan to sneak in and make his attack.
All ties must be cut, all cords chopped away:
Eat this truth and grow strong for this evil day.

CHORUS:

Trimming and pruning and clearing the vines,
Praying and keeping the world from our minds.
We walk in the Spirit and keep our robes white,
And gear up the church for the fight.




We cannot look back now, or longfor the past,
Our future's with God now, our first and our last:
All things become clear with our prophet's clear sight,
We press on an merge with the light.




The days they are evil and will not improve,
So we must be holy and ready to move.
God calls us to battle to wipe out our foe,
Therefore the lukewarm must go.

CHORUS:

Trimming and pruning and clearing the vines,
Praying and keeping the world from our minds.
We walk in the Spirit and keep our robes white,
And gear up the church for the fight.
And gear up the church for the fight.
