1 Soldiers of Christ, arise,
And put your armor on;
Strong in the strength which 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 panoply of God.
From strength to strength go one,
Wrestle, and fight, and pray;
Tread all the powers of darkness down,
And win the well-fought day.
3 Leave no unguarded place,
No weakness of the soul;
Take every virtue, ev'ry grace,
And fortify the whole.
That, having all things done,
And all your conflicts past,
Ye may o'ercome, through Christ alone,
And stand complete at last.
