8432. Who'll Stand Up For Jesus?

1 O who’ll stand up for Jesus,
The lowly Nazarene?
And raise the blood stained banner
Amid the hosts of sin?

The cross for Christ I’ll cherish,
Its crucifixion bear;
All hail! reproach or sorrow,
If Jesus leads me there.

2 O, who will follow Jesus,
Amid reproach and shame?
Where others shrink or falter,
Who’ll glory in His name? [Refrain]

3 Though fierce may rage the battle,
And wild the storm may blow,
Though friends may go forever,
Who will with Jesus go? [Refrain]

4 Though foes shall madly gather,
And devils rage and roar,
Who’ll choose the fiery furnace,
With Jesus evermore? [Refrain]

5 My all to Christ I’ve given,
My talents, time, and voice,
Myself, my reputation,
The lone way is my choice. [Refrain]

6 O Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
My all sufficient friend!
Come, fold me to Thy bosom,
E’en to the journey’s end. [Refrain]
