For Christ and the church we stand

Full Text

1 “For Christ and the Church” we stand
United heart and hand;
Our lips His praise to speak,
Our hands to help the weak;
Our feet the lost to seek,
“For Christ and the Church.”

Refrain:
“For Christ and the Church” we stand,
United heart and hand;
Our lives henceforth we give to live
“For Christ and the Church.”

2 “For Christ and the Church” we pray,
And labour day by day;
With zeal and courage new
We’ll strive some work to do,
And keep our cov’nant true,
“For Christ and the Church.” [Refrain]

3 “For Christ and the Church” we sing,
And glad hosannas bring;
Since He hath made us free,
And promised victory,
Our motto still shall be,
“For Christ and the Church.” [Refrain]
