1 Arise, arise, for men are wanted,
Right must triumph over wrong;
Arise, arise and stand undaunted
Tho’ the strife be fierce and long.
“Here am I,” shall be our answer,
True and loyal ev’ry one,
We will bear the cross of Jesus,
Till the glorious fight is won.
2 Behold, behold, His banner waving,
When the hosts of sin appear;
Go forth, go forth, the conflict braving,
Heed the call now ringing clear. [Refrain]
3 To arms, to arms, the battle’s raging,
Hasten ere the vict’ry’s won,
To arms, to arms, the wrong engaging,
Triumph ere the setting sun. [Refrain]Source: The Excelsior Hymnal #25
