Representative Text

1 Rouse ye now, ye soldiers
Of the cross, arise;
Laud your captain’s glory
To the very skies;
Foes are lurking ’round you,
Seek ye not repose;
Christ your faithful leader
To the battle goes.

Forward, soldiers,
To the battlefield;
Fight for Jesus
Till the foe shall yield;
For the Spirit
Gives you strength today,
Forward to the battlefield,
Away, then, away.

2 Up and doing, Christians,
’Tis the Lord’s command;
Dare ye longer idle,
There is work at hand;
Souls are dying ’round you,
For the blessèd word;
Bear to them the message
Of your precious Lord. [Refrain]

3 Thro’ the weary conflict
Bear the toil and pain,
Suffering here for Jesus
Is but heav’nly gain;
When the strife is ended,
When your work’s complete,
All these earthly trials
Make your rest more sweet. [Refrain]
