Quit you like men, be strong, lean on the Lord's

Quit you like men, be strong, lean on the Lord's

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Quit you like men, be strong
Lean on Thy Lord's right hand!
Why should you faint or be dismayed,
When He is in command?

Stand fast in the faith,
Quit you like men, be strong!
Hearken to what your Lord hath said;
He is thy strength and song.

2 Quit you like men, be strong,
Hold up faith's mighty shield!
thine are the weapons of His grace,
To these His foes shall yield. [Chorus]

3 Quit you like men, be strong,
For bold is Satan's host;
Courage, ye soldiers of the Lord,
That may His triumphs boast! [Chorus]

4 Quit you like men, be strong,
In God's whole armour clad,
War a good warfare to the end;
Spread ye the tidings glad. [Chorus]
