Equip me for the war

Full Text

1 Equip me for the war,
And teach my hands to fight;
My simple, upright heart prepare,
And guide my words aright.

2 Control my every thought;
And all my sins remove;
Let all my works in Thee be wrought,
Let all be wrought in love.

3 Oh, arm me with the mind,
Meek Lamb, that was in Thee!
And let enlightened zeal be joined
With perfect charity.

4 Oh, may I love like Thee!
In all Thy footsteps tread;
Thou hatest all iniquity,
But nothing Thou hast made.

5 Oh, may I learn the art,
With meekness to reprove!
And hate the sin with all my heart,
But still the sinner love.

Amen.
