616 - Soldiers of Christ, Arise

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 trust
Is more than conqueror

Stand, then in His great might,
With all His strength endued;
But take, to arm you for the fight,
The panoply of God;
That, having all things done,
And all your conflicts passed,
You may o’ercome thr’ Christ alone,
And stand entire at last.

From strength to strength go on;
Wrestle, and fight, and pray;
Tread all the power of darkness down,
And win the well-fought day;
Still let the Spirit cry,
In all His soldiers, “Come!”
Till Christ the Lord who reign on high
Shall take the conquerors home.
