Words: George Duffield, 1858
Tune: George J. Webb, 1837
Stand up, stand up for Jesus you soldiers of the cross;
Lift high your royal banner it must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory His army shall He lead,
'Til every foe is vanquished and Christ is Lord indeed
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the trumpet call obey;
Then join 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.
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.
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.
