481. Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus

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 every foe is vanquished
And Christ is Lord indeed.

Refrain:
Stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner,
It must not suffer loss.

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. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

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 who overcometh
A crown of life shall be;
He with the King of Glory,
Shall reign eternally. [Refrain]
