Soldiers of Christ, arise,And put your armor on,Strong in the strength which God suppliesThro’ his eternal Son.Strong in the Lord of hosts,And in his mighty pow’r,Who in the strength of Jesus trustsIs more than conqueror.

To keep your armor 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…

He speaks, and the sound of His voiceIs so sweet the birds hush their singing;And the melody that He gave to meWithin my heart is ringing. Refrain I’d stay in the garden with Him,Tho the night around me be falling;But He bids…
