SOLDIERS of Christ, arise,

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 SOLDIERS of Christ, arise,
      And put your armour 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;
      But take, to arm you for the fight,
      The panoply of God;
      That, having all things done,
      And all your conflicts passed,
      Ye may o'ercome through Christ alone,
      And stand entire at last.

      3 Stand then against your foes,
      In close and firm array;
      Legions of wily fiends oppose
      Throughout the evil day;
      But meet the sons of night,
      But mock their vain design,
      Armed in the arms of heavenly light,
      Of righteousness divine.

      4 Leave no unguarded place,
      No weakness of the soul,
      Take every virtue, every grace,
      And fortify the whole;
      Indissolubly joined,
      To battle all proceed;
      But arm yourselves with all the mind
      That was in Christ, your Head.
