Verse 1:
  A7sus4   D                  G/B    A/C♯ 
O Church, arise, and put your armor on;
         D/F♯    G          Asus4  A   D
Hear the call of Christ our Cap    -   tain.
    A7sus4  D                 G/B      A/C♯ 
For now the weak can say that they are strong
       D/F♯          G       Asus4   A    D
In the strength that God has giv     -    en.
     D/F♯      G         D/F♯    A
With shield of faith and belt of truth,
      D/F♯    G         D/F♯   Bm    A
We'll stand against the de  -  vil's lies;
   A7sus4  D                  G/B    A/C♯ 
An army    bold, whose battle cry is Love,
         D/F♯   G        Asus4   A   D   Dsus4    D
Reaching out to those in dark    -   ness.
Verse 2:
Our call to war, to love the captive soul
But to rage against the captor;
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole,
We will fight with faith and valour.
When faced with trials on every side
We know the outcome is secure,
And Christ will have the prize for which He died,
An inheritance of nations.
Verse 3:
Come see the cross, where love and mercy meet,
As the Son of God is stricken;
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet,
For the Conqueror has risen!
And as the stone is rolled away,
And Christ emerges from the grave,
This victory march continues till the day
Every eye and heart shall see Him.
Verse 4:
So Spirit, come, put strength in every stride,
Give grace for every hurdle,
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful.
As saints of old still line the way,
Retelling triumphs of His grace,
We hear their calls, and hunger for the day
When with Christ we stand in glory.

O church arise and put your armor on
Hear the call of Christ our Captain
For now the weak can say that they are strong
In the strength that God has given
With shield of faith and belt of truth
We'll stand against the devil's lies
An army bold whose battle-cry is Love
Reaching out to those in darkness

Our call to war to love the captive soul
But to rage against the captor
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith and valor
When faced with trials on every side
We know the outcome is secure
And Christ will have the prize for which He died
An inheritance of nations

Come see the cross where love and mercy meet
As the Son of God is stricken
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet
For the Conqueror has risen
And as the stone is rolled away
And Christ emerges from the grave
This victory march continues till the day
Every eye and heart shall see Him

So Spirit come put strength in every stride
Give grace for every hurdle
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful
As saints of old still line the way
Retelling triumphs of His grace
We hear their calls and hunger for the day
When with Christ we stand in glory
