Having Done All, to Stand

Full Text

1 Soldier of Christ, be steadfast!
This is the "evil day;"
Look to your Royal Leader,
Ever His word obey.
Taking the heav'nly armor,
Wait for your Lord's command;
This is the charge He gives you,
"Having done all, to stand."

Stand, therefore, stand,
Stand, therefore, stand;
Trusting in Jesus, our Savior,
Having done all to stand.

2 Patient and true and faithful,
Facing the deadly foe;
Stand in the place appointed,
March, when He bids you go.
All through the passing moments,
Onward to Canaan's land;
Banish all fear and doubting,
Having done all, to stand. [Chorus]

3 This is no time to question,
This is no time to yield;
Never a soul should falter,
Bearing His sword and shield.
Keep in the ranks of Jesus,
Watching on ev'ry hand;
This is the christian duty,
"Having done all, to stand." [Chorus]
