1 Soldiers of Christ, arise
and put your armor on,
strong in the strength that God supplies
through his eternal Son,
strong in the Lord of hosts
and in his mighty power;
who in the strength of Jesus trusts
is more than conqueror.
2 Stand, then, in his great might,
with all his strength endued,
and take, to arm you for the fight,
the weapons of our God.
To keep your armor bright,
attend with constant care,
still walking in your captain's sight
and keeping watch with prayer.
3 From strength to strength go on,
to wrestle, fight, and pray;
tread all the powers of darkness down
and win the well-fought day,
till, having all things done
and all your conflicts past,
you overcome through Christ alone
and stand complete at last.
