Representative Text

1 It’s up to you to make a fight
For all that’s good, and true and right;
To show by things you say and do,
How much the Lord has done for you.

Refrain:
It’s up to you, it’s up to you,
Great things for Christ your Lord to do,
To be a Christian brave and true,
It’s up to you, it’s up to you.

2 It’s up to you some soul to win,
Who wanders now in paths of sin;
To tell of Christ the crucified,
Who for a world of sin has died. [Refrain]

3 It’s up to you to live each day
In such a consecrated way
That weaker ones that round you throng,
May learn to sing redemption’s song. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
