Shining armor, oh so bright,

Reflecting love and God’s pure light.

Encasing within a sense of duty,

to do His work and share His beauty.

Protective shield held in one arm,

A sword is swung but not to harm.

To free souls from an eternal wrath,

set instead on a virtuous path.

Helmet made of purest gold,

Assuring the battle be swift and bold.

Good and evil no more entwined,

Ensuring no man is left behind.
