Ready for Battle

While we’re wandering in the dark, and over this treacherous sea,

Please hear us, young maid, Joan of Arc. You won’t ignore our plea

In this vale, so filled with tears, the sufferings that wait in store

You’ll come in haste, to calm our fears, and row us to safer shore

The battle horn is blowing now, the Angels poised with bowls of wrath, St. Joan help us through this somehow, and lead us  along God’s holy path

It’s hard to see the light at all, the battle’s just begun, We hear you with your battle call, with you the victory will be won

St. Joan, you’re here to help us fight, with your courage we can win. The enemy sees you and takes flight, in this evil world of sin

We need your help. The time is here, and now we join your army ranks. Your time’s arrived, the signs are clear. There’s no need for army tanks

St. Joan, we join you in this war, for this , the Lord will arm us. Your name, we’ll bear upon our breast, and nothing then will harm us

I am a Roman Catholic who is interested in spreading the faith. I especially would love to promote devotion to two beautiful saints. I have a strong devotion to St. Joan D' Arc and St. Therese of Lisieux. Way before I made my Confirmation, I knew St. Joan was the name I'd take. It seemed only fitting that she would be the one. After all,her courage to be a real soldier of Christ inspired me to want to be like her. When you make your Confirmation,in fact you really become a soldier of Christ At the same,Like St. Therese,I am also a simple soul just trying to please God and do his work. I am a mother of one beautiful son.I home school him. I'm very honored to be a part of this website and hope you'll enjoy my posts.
