Hymnary Friends,

Of Zion's Honor Angels Sing

Representative Text

1 Rise, ye children of salvation,
All who cleave to Christ the Head!
Wake, arise, O mighty nation,
Ere the foe on Zion tread;
He draws nigh and would defy
All the hosts of God Most High.

2 Saints and heroes long before us
Firmly on this ground have stood;
See their banner waving o'er us,
Conqu'rors through the Savior's blood,
Ground we hold, whereon of old,
Fought the faithful and the bold.

3 Fighting, we shall be victorious
By the blood of Christ our Lord;
On our foreheads, bright and glorious,
Shines the witness of His Word;
Spear and shield on battlefield,
His great name; we cannot yield.

4 When His servants stand before Him,
Each receiving his reward;
When His saints in light adore Him,
Giving glory to the Lord;
"Victory!" our song shall be,
Like the thunder of the sea.
