    Verse 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 army shall He lead,
    Till every 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;
    You dare not trust your own.
    Put on the Christian's armour,
    And watching unto prayer,
    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 eternally.
