459. 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 victory unto victory,
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, 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,
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. (Refrain)
