Sword

 

Only God can whet the edge

Of steel thatís made of light

Or sharp the word that is his pledge

To pierce the wrong with right

   

This gleaming polished saber

This Holy Spirit sword

Is faithís most trusted neighbor

And is close, as is the  LORD

 

Sharper still more powerful

Than any two edged sword

To us a thing most beautiful

But fear to evilís hoard

   

There is no other weapon

With this the only goal

To heaven sinners beckon

An save the sinnerís soul
