Steven Curtis Chapman - When You Are A Soldier Lyrics

When you are a soldier I will be your shield
I will go with you into the battlefield
And when the arrows start to fly
Take my hand and hold on tight
I will be your shield, 'cause I know how it feels
When you are a soldier

When you're tired from running
I will cheer you on
Look beside you and you'll see you're not alone
And when your strength is all but gone
I'll carry you until you're strong
And I will be your shield 'cause I know how it feels
When you're a soldier

I will be the one you can cry your songs to
My eyes will share your tears
And I'll be your friend if you win
Or if you're defeated
Whenever you need me I will be here

When you're lost in darkness I will hold the light
I will help you find your way through the night
I'll remind you of the truth
And keep the flame alive in you
And I will be your shield
'Cause I know how it feels
When you are a soldier

Steven Curtis Chapman When You Are A Soldier Comments

    I turn to this song often as I face my personal persecution. I feel defeated, unwanted and my dreams are ending in nightmare. I want to give up but I continue because of God. Though no one really knows or cares I have God - my light, my shield, my friend as I fight for life. How can I compare my pain, my grief, my suffering to that of Christ = and yet He still loves me.

    This song goes out to all my friends who gave to their country in Desert Storm. Their bravery and dedication was and always will much appreciated. Thankfully, they all made it through!

    This song reminds us as Christians we're not just in "the bless me club" that this is a war, and as CS Lewis wrote, we're in enemy occupied territory with a real job to do.

    It is such a powerful song; it really moves me. It is truly what God is and what we should be for one another. I understand it is actually a song that was made for a wedding which when you listen to the words you can see what God is to the bride and groom and what they should be to each other. It is the song I sang at a friend's wedding (after a personal tragedy I had not sung for years).

  14. BlessedEve
