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 pow'r.
Who in the strength of Jesus trusts
Is more than conqueror.
3 Stand, then, in His great might,
With all His strength endued;
But take, to arm you for the fight,
The whole armor of God,
4 That, having all things done
And all your conflicts past,
Ye may o'ercome through Christ alone
And stand entire at last.
5 From strength to strength go on,
Wrestle and fight and pray;
Tread all the pow'rs of darkness down
And win the well-fought day.
6 Still let the Spirit cry
In all His soldiers, "Come,"
Till Christ the Lord descends from high
And takes the conqu'rors home.
