    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.
