1 Arise! “To the help of the Lord,” arise!
All ye who love him, the simple and wise;
He bids you to labor, to list to his call:
“To the help of the Lord come now, great and small!”

Arise! arise,
Ye who believe in his holy word;
Ye who have tested his cleansing pow’r;
Arise at his call this very hour.

2 Go forth! “To the help of the Lord,” go forth!
Souls are in travail and seek the new birth;
The harvest is ready, the fields are all white;
“Go ye forth, ere cometh the night!”

Arise! arise,
Leaning for strength on his own sure word;
Use ev’ry talent and ev’rypow’r;
Arise and go forth this very hour.

3 Arouse! For the sound of the trumpet’s blast
Soon will give warning, and day will be past;
With truth be ye girded; now take sword and shield;
To the work! to the work! Oh, faint not, nor yield!

Arise! arise,
Led by his hand and his own sure word;
Burnish your armor, withhold no pow’r;
Arise at his call this very hour.
