1 Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
you soldiers of the cross!
Lift high his royal banner,
it must not suffer loss.
From victory on to victory
his army he shall lead
till evil is defeated,
and Christ is Lord indeed.
2 Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
The trumpet call obey;
then join the mighty conflict
in this his glorious day.
Be strong in faith and serve him,
against unnumbered foes;
let courage rise with danger,
and strength to strength oppose.
3 Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
Stand in his power alone,
for human might will fail you --
you dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armour,
keep watch with constant prayer;
when duty calls or danger,
be never failing there.
4 Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
The fight will not be long:
this day the noise of battle,
the next the victor's song.
To everyone who conquers,
a crown of life shall be;
we, with the king of glory,
shall reign eternally.
