Ephesians 6:11-13

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

There are dozens of excellent songs from this passage. Charles Wesley’s “Soldiers of Christ, Arise” is featured here not only because it’s one of the best, but because this acapella arrangement is too splendid to pass over:
