Soldiers of Christ, Arise!  (Tune: St. Ethelwald)

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.

Stand then in his great might, with all his strength endured,
And take, to arm you for the fight, the panoply of God.

Leave no unguarded place, no weakness of the soul,
Take ev’ry virtue, ev’ry grace, and fortify the whole.

From strength to strength go on, wrestle and fight and pray:
Tread all the powers of darkness down, and win the well-fought day.

That, having all things done, and all your conflicts past,
Ye may obtain, through Christ alone, a crown of joy at last.
