472. Rise, Ye Children of Salvation

1 Rise, ye children of salvation,
All who cleave to Christ, the Head.
Wake, awake, O mighty nation,
Ere the Foe on Zion tread.
He draws nigh, and would defy
All the hosts of God Most High.

2 Saints and martyrs long before us
Firmly on this ground have stood;
See their banner waving o’er us,
Conqu'rors thro' the Savior’s blood.
Ground we hold whereon of old
Fought the faithful and the bold.

3 Fighting, we shall be victorious
By the blood of Christ our Lord;
On our foreheads, bright and glorious,
Shines the witness of His Word;
Spear and shield on battlefield,
His great name we cannot yield.

4 When His servants stand before Him,
Each receiving his reward;
When His saints in light adore Him,
Giving glory to the Lord,
"Victory!" our song shall be
Like the thunder of the sea.

Amen.
