SOLDIERS of Christ, arise,
   And put your armour on,
Strong in the strength which God supplies
    Through His eternal Son.
2      Strong in the Lord of hosts,
    And in His mighty power;
Who in the strength of Jesus trusts
    Is more than conqueror.
3      Stand then in His great might,
    With all His strength endued;
And take, to arm you for the fight,
    The panoply of God.
4      To keep your armour bright,
    Attend with constant care;
Still walking in your Captain’s sight,
    And watching unto prayer.
5      From strength to strength go on;
    Wrestle, and fight, and pray;
Tread all the powers of darkness down,
    And win the well-fought day.
6      Then, having all things done,
    And every conflict passed,
Ye may o’ercome through Christ alone,
    And stand complete at last.
Charles Wesley, 1707-88
