Arise, ye saints, arise. T. Kelly. [Christ the Leader.] First published in the 3rd edition of his Hymns on V. P. of Scripture, 1809, No. 77, in 7 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, “He teacheth my hands to war," Ps. xviii. 34. In 1812 it was taken out of the above, and included in Kelly's Hymns adapted for Social Worship, No. 88, but subsequently it was restored to the original work. Full text in Hymns, M. Moses, Dublin, 1853, No. 253. As in common use both in Great Britain and America, it is in an abbreviated form, but the arrangement of stanzas differs in various collections.
