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!
    Each soldier to his post;
Close up the broken column,
    Encourage all the host.
Make good the loss so heavy
    In those who still remain;
And prove to all around you
    That death itself is gain.
3  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
