	1. Rise, ye children of salvation,
	All who cleave to Christ, the Head.
	Wake, arise, O mighty nation,
	Ere the Foe on Zion tread.
	He draws nigh and would defy
	All the hosts of God Most High.
	2. Saints and heroes long before us
	Firmly o this ground have stood;
	See their banner waving o'er us,
	Conquerors through the Savior's blood.
	Ground we hold whereon of old
	Fought the faithful and the bold.
	3. Fighting, we shall be victorious
	By the blood of Christ, our Lord;
	On our foreheads, bright and glorious,
	Shines the witness of His Word;
	Spear and shield on battle-field,
	His great name we cannot yield.
	4. When His servants stand before Him,
	Each receiving his reward;
	When His saints in light adore Him,
	Giving glory to the Lord,
	"Victory!" our songs shall be 
	Like the thunder of the sea.
