                            THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
               (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Soldiers of Christ, arise
        And put your armor on,
        Strong in the strength which God supplies
        Thro' His eternal Son;

        2. Strong in the Lord of hosts
        And in His mighty pow'r.
        Who in the strength of Jesus trusts
        Is more than conqueror.

        3. Stand, then, in His great might,
        With all His strength endued;
        But take, to arm you for the fight,
        The panoply of God,

        4. That, having all things done
        And all your conflicts past,
        Ye may o'ercome through Christ alone
        And stand entire at last.

        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.
