Soldier of Christ (poem)
You are the sons and daughters of Christ,
Christ is the King of All.
A King has soldiers,
You are his soldiers, ahoy.
The great King is the king of light,
So are the soldiers of light!
Spread light everywhere, soldiers!
March forward and never backtrack.
The nature of light is to dispel darkness,
A soldier of light repels darkness.
Soldiers of Christ arise,
Walk from age to age.
Spread hope where there is none,
Give the Gospel and you give hope.
Fear not the enemy one bit,
For Christ has won it all.
Trample snakes and scorpions, them all,
You have authority use it.
All the enemies weapons against us are useless,
Hold on to the truth and fight back.
Heal the sick and never pass out,
Condemn the accusers and their lot.
This is your heritage O Soldier,
Live in it strongly now my friend.
Born a Soldier in the Lord,
Don’t try to become for you already are.
The angels will come at the world’s end,
To help you soldier of faith to survive in glory.
Keep steady, speak life in abundance,
Pray in the success that Christ has won.
Bear the standard of the cross.
By it are the evil powers defeated.
Christ will come again O soldier.
So stand firm when final judgment arrives.
Wear the armor of God, will ye then?
Rise up for the Savior again and again.

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace..
