Stand Up for Jesus
Words by George Duffield
Music by George J. Webb
"Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner, it must not suffer loss.
From vict'ry unto vict'ry His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished, and Christ is Lord indeed.
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.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you - ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armor, and watching unto prayer prayer;
Where duty calls or danger, be never wanting there.
