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.
2  Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
    The trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict
    In this His glorious day:
Ye that are His, 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 armour,
    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.
George Duffield, 1818-88
