Soldiers of Christ, arise,
And put your armour on;
Fight, for the battle will be ours;
We fight to win a crown.
We fight not against flesh,
We wrestle not with blood;
But with principalities and powers,
And for the truth of God.
With wicked spirits, too,
That in high places stand,
Perverting of the Word of God,
And say `tis by command.
