1 Behold the Christian warrior stand
In all the armor of his God;
The Spirit’s sword is in his hand;
His feet are with the gospel shod;
2 In panoply of truth complete,
Salvation’s helmet on his head,
With righteousness a breastplate meet,
And faith’s broad shield before him spread.
3 Undaunted to the field he goes;
Yet vain were skill and valor there,
Unless, to foil his legion foes,
He takes the trustiest weapon, prayer.
4 Thus, strong in his Redeemer’s strength,
Sin, death, and hell he tramples down;
Fights the good fight, and wins at length,
Through mercy, an immortal crown.
