130 Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus
(STAND UP FOR JESUS. 7,6,7,6,D. With Refrain)
George Duffield, 1858 Adam Geibel, 1901
 


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 amry shall he lead,
Till every foe is vanquished, And Christ is Lord indeed.
Refrain
Stand up for Jesus, Ye soldiers of the cross;
Light 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 hi glorious day:
Ye that are men now serve him Against unnumbered foes;
Your courage rise with danger, And strength to strength oppose.
Refrain
3.Stand up, stand up for Jesus! Stand in his stength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you, Ye dare no trust your own;
Put on the gospel armor, Each piece put on 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 put him that overcometh A crown of life shall be,
He with the King of Glory Shall reign eternally.
Refrain
Amen.
