The Shield, the Sword, and the Army
by Rebekah Nesbitt

I have a shield
Everywhere I go
I carry my shield with me
The shield protects me
It gives me strength
I have a sword
In times of strife
My sword is drawn
The sword defends me
It gives me courage
I have an army
When battles arise
I call on my army
The army stands with me
It gives me hope
Faith is my shield
Love is my sword
Friends are my army
These three things
Are all we really need
