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 panoply of God.
4 Leave no unguarded place,
No weakness of the soul;
Take ev'ry virtue, ev'ry grace,
And fortify the whole.
5 To keep your armor bright,
Attend with constant care;
Still walking in your Captain's sight,
And watching unto prayer.
6 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.
