1 O who'll stand up for Jesus,
The lowly Nazarene,
And raise the blood-stained banner
Amid the hosts of sin?

The cross of Christ I'll cherish,
Its crucifixion bear;
All hail reproach or sorrow
If Jesus leads me there.

2 O who will follow Jesus,
Amid report and shame?
While others shrink and falter,
Who'll glory in his name? [Chorus]

3 Though fierce may rage the battle,
And wild the storm may blow,
Though friends may go forever,
Who will with Jesus go? [Chorus]

4 My all to Christ I've given,
My talents, time, and voice,
Myself, my reputation,
His glory is my choice. [Chorus]
