Stand up, Stand up for Jesus

George Duffield, 1858
[Key: F#]

Verse 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 He shall lead,
Till ev’ry foe is vanquished, And Christ is Lord indeed.

Verse 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.

Verse 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 pray’r;
Where duty calls, or danger, Be never wanting there.

Verse 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 eternal.
