Representative Text

1 Oh, Christian, arise,
The conflict fierce is raging,
And trusting in God,
His help today implore;
Behold, what a fight
The enemy is raging,
Haste nor deem the conflict o’er.

Arise, oh arise,
And hasten, Christian soldier,
Go forth to the fight
That waits for us today;
No time for delay!
For Satan’s power grows bolder;
Jesus calls! We must obey.

2 Oh, Christian, arise,
For souls around are dying;
The call comes to you—
Oh, send them light today;
The glad Gospel news—
To those in bondage lying,
Speed and help them while you may. [Refrain]

3 Oh, Christian, arise!
And buckle on the armor,
Go forth to the fray,
For Christ Himself is near;
His grace will sustain,
And naught of ill shall harm you;
Jesus leads—why should you fear? [Refrain]

4 Oh, Christian, arise—
For soon the morning breaketh,
That glad blessèd morn,
When all earth’s shadows flee;
So fight night and day
’Till Heaven’s dawn awaketh,
That shall bring the victory. [Refrain]
