Lyrics
Warriors in Suits
Fathers struggle to hide emotions.
Mothers go through the usual motions.
One can see the look of devotion in their gleaming eyes.
Loved ones hug and feel their hearts break.
Some must be content with a handshake.
What could be so strong that it would make families say goodbye?

Their love for Christ burns bright within them.
They would go great lengths to serve Him.
The call to feed His lambs is strong.
Their eyes shine straight through the clouded dawn.
Glancing neither left nor looking right,
They're enhanced with God's own might.

Warriors dressed in suits, perfect pictures;
Swords of faith and the holy scriptures;
Guardian angels, permanent fixtures guiding in the fight.
Dangers are deflected by God's hand.
Two by two they conquer and disband,
Bring their fellow men unto Christ and help them gain their sight.

Their love for Christ burns bright within them.
They would go great lengths to serve Him.
The call to feed His lambs is strong.
Their eyes shine straight through the clouded dawn.
Glancing neither left nor looking right,
They're enhanced with God's own might.

The love, the tender feeling love they display
Changes lives, and hate and fear and doubt flee away.
That love which comes from living a Christ-like way
Lifts them up——and brings them home.

Mother finally gets to hug her son.
Father choked up with tears just says, "Well done,"
But the greatest words come from that One whom they've served their best.
Wheat and tares they've sown on life's farm
As they choose to forsake the world's charm.
Christ, Himself will say with outstretched arms, "Welcome to my rest."

Their love for Christ burns bright within them.
They would go great lengths to serve Him.
The call to feed His lambs is strong.
Their eyes shine straight through the clouded dawn.
Glancing neither left nor looking right,
They're enhanced with God's own might.
