1 Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
you soldiers of the cross,
lift high his royal banner,
it must not suffer loss;
from victory unto victory
his army shall he lead,
till every foe is vanquished
and Christ is Lord indeed.
2 Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
the trumpet call obey;
forth to the mighty conflict
in this his glorious day.
You that are brave, now serve him
against unnumbered foes;
let courage rise with danger,
and strength to strrength oppose.
3 Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
stand in his strength alone;
the arm of flesh will fail you--
you dare not trust your own;
put on the gospel armor,
each piece put on with prayer;
where duty calls, or danger,
be never wanting there.
4 Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
the strife will not be long;
this day the noise of battle,
the next, the victor's song:
to those who conquer evil
a crown of life shall be;
they with the King of glory
shall reign eternally.
