1 Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
you soldiers of the cross!
lift high his royal banner,
it must not suffer loss:
from victory on to victory
his army he shall lead
till evil is defeated
and Christ is Lord indeed.

2 Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
the trumpet-call obey;
then join the mighty conflict
in this his glorious day:
be strong in faith and serve him
against unnumbered foes;
let courage rise with danger,
and strength to strength oppose.

3 Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
stand in his power alone,
for human might will fail you
you dare not trust your own:
put on the gospel armour,
keep watch with constant prayer;
where duty calls or danger
be never failing there.

4 Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
the fight will not be long;
this day the noise of battle,
the next the victor's song:
to everyone who conquers,
a crown of life shall be;
we, with the king of glory,
shall reign eternally.
