548. Soldiers of Christ, arise

1 Soldiers of Christ, arise,
and put your armor on,
strong in the strength which God supplies
through his eternal Son;

2 strong in the Lord of hosts,
and in his mighty power:
who in the strength of Jesus trusts
is more than conqueror.

3 Stand then in his great might,
with all his strength endued,
and take, to arm you for the fight,
the panoply of God.

4 From strength to strength go on,
wrestle and fight and pray:
tread all the powers of darkness down,
and win the well-fought day.

5 That, having all things done,
and all your conflicts past,
ye may o'ercome, through Christ alone,
and stand complete at last.
