Soldiers of Christ a-rise,

Now put your ar-mor on,

Strong in the strength which God supplies,

Through his be-lov-ed son.

Strong in the Lord of hosts,

And in his mighty power;

He who in his redeemer trusts,

Is more than conqueror.

Stand then in his great might,

With all his strength endued;

Take you, to arm you for the fight,

The panoply of God.

Then when your work is done,

And all your conflicts past,

You shall o'ercome, through Christ alone,

And stand entire at last.

Stand then against your foes

In close and firm array;

Legions of wiley fiends oppose,

Throughout the evil day.

But meet the sons of night,

Oppose their vain design;

Armed in the arms of heavenly light,

Of righteousness divine.

Leave no unguarded place,

No weakness of the soul;

Take every virtue, every grace,

And fortify the whole.

Ever together joined,

To battle all proceed;

Arm you yourselves with all the mind

That was in Christ your head.
