                                Text From:
                            THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
               (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Stand up!--stand up for Jesus,
        Ye soldiers of the Cross!
        Lift high His royal banner,
        It must not suffer loss.
        From vict'ry unto vict'ry
        His army shall He lead
        Till ev'ry 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.
