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 pow’r;
who in the strength of Jesus trusts
is more than conqueror.

Stand then in His great might,
with all His strength endued;
and take, to arm you for the fight,
the panoply of God:
to keep your armour bright,
attend with constant care,
still walking in your Captain’s sight
and watching unto prayer.

From strength to strength go on,
wrestle and fight and pray;
tread all the pow’rs of darkness down
and win the well-fought day.
That, having all things done,
and all your conflicts past,
ye may o’ercome through Christ alone,
and stand entire at last.

Charles Wesley (1749)
