Words and music by Bob Hartman

It used to be a distant call
Thought to be for some but never all
Now our wounded lay on every side
Now this call to arms can't be denied

The enemy will tremble
As young and old assemble
A mighty army up in arms

(Chorus)
Armed and dangerous
God's enemies will scatter
Armed and dangerous
We'll see the darkness shatter
This armor is worth it's weight
No weapon can penetrate
Armed and dangerous
We're ready to storm the gate

We're not so tough on our own
Not one can even stand all alone
Just a rag tag army at its best
We sometimes even fail the smallest test
But though this tribulation
There comes a transformation
We don the armor of our King

Stand!
Up against the flood
Stand!
Covered by His blood
We are the standard He has raised
Stand!
Earnestly contend
Stand!
To the very end
We've only just begun to fight
