1. Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the word;
Lift high His royal banner, Ye must not be deterred:
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:
Ye that are men now 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 strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you, Ye 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 him that overcometh a crown of life shall be;
He, with the King of Glory, shall reign eternally.
