1 “Let us arise and build!”
Cried Israel of old,
Then toiled as one till radiant shone
Those walls o’erlaid with gold.
“Let us arise and build!”
O heed the call today,
Then Christ’s “Well done!” at set of sun
Shall crown the weary way.
2 “Let us arise and build!”
That message rings through time,
And moveth still the heart and will
To energy sublime. [Refrain]
3 “Let us arise and build”
In graces of the soul,
Till each shall be in symmetry
A perfect rounded whole. [Refrain]
4 But let us build on Christ,
The soul’s foundation strong,
Then life shall be a harmony
That ends in Heaven’s song. [Refrain]Source: Hymns We Love, for Sunday Schools and All Devotional Meetings #52
