Verse 1
Awake, and in His strength renewed,
The battle cry take up again;
All enemies shall be subdued,
And Christ the Lord shall reign

Chorus
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain;
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain,
For Christ must reign.

Verse 2
Too long His followers idly stood
By selfish creed and doctrine rent;
Nor knew that for one Brotherhood,
His own short life was spent

Chorus
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain;
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain,
For Christ must reign.

Verse 3
Unite and in His strength go on,
Nor count a life as lost, but gain;
And soon the victory shall be won,
For Jesus Christ must reign,

Chorus
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain;
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain,
For Christ must reign.

Verse 4
To dare and do for Him is meet,
The struggle shall not be in vain,
The trumpet shall not call `Retreat,`
For Jesus Christ must reign

Chorus
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain;
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
For Christ must reign,
Our hope in Him is not in vain,
For Christ must reign.
