744 (S.M.) Charles Wesley

Soldiers of Christ, arise,

Now put your armor on,

Strong in the strength which God supplies,

Through His beloved Son.

Strong in the Lord of Hosts,

And in His mighty pow'r:

He who in his Redeemer trusts

Is more than conqueror.

Stand then in His great might,

With all His strength endowed;

Take ye, to arm you for the fight,

The panoply of God.

Then, when your work is done,

And all your conflicts past,

Ye shall o'ercome through Christ alone,

And stand entire at last.

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;

Oppose their vain design,

Armed in the arms of heav'nly light,

Of righteousness divine.

Leave no unguarded place,

No weakness of the soul;

Take ev'ry virtue, ev'ry grace,

And fortify the whole:

Ever together joined,

To battle all proceed;

Arm ye yourselves with all the mind

That was in Christ your head.
