For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones [is] as a storm [against] the wall.
The Lord God Almighty is ever our bastion and bulwark of defense. As we marshal to the fore go join battle against our raging enemy, ever does the Lord’s banner fly before us. As we take up the call to arms and muster to the field of our spiritual war, we take our courage in His strength – for by Him, we are become far more than mere conquerors. We are children of the King and shall ever be victorious against our foe.
