1 Do you slumber in your tent, Christian soldier,
While the foe is spreading woe through the land?
Do you note his rising pow’r,
Growing bolder ev’ry hour?
Will he not our land devour while you stand?
Let us arise! all unite!
Let us arise! in our might!
Let us arise! speak for God and the right;
Though our number may be few,
God will lead us grandly through,
And our arms with strength endue by His might.
2 Can you linger in your tent, Christian soldier?
Satan’s smiling o’er your idle delay;
Thousands perish while you wait,
While you counsel and debate;
Heed you not their awful fate as they stray? [Refrain]
3 Let us rise in holy wrath, Christian soldiers,
Crush the evil ‘neath the heal of our might!
Counting cost, no longer wait,
Forward, manhood of the State!
For in God your strength is great for the right. [Refrain]
