538. Stand up, stand up, for Jesus

7.6.7.6.D.

Webb:

George J. Webb, 1837

George Duffield, Jr., 1858

Stand up, stand up, for Jesus,

Ye 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.

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.

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 armour,

And watching unto prayer,

When duty calls, or danger,

Be never wanting there!

499

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.
