Stå upp för Jesus

Representative Text

1 Stå upp, stå upp, för Jesus,
Du korsets helga här!
Och hans baner i spetsen
Mot fienderna bär.
Från seger och till seger
Hans här framtåga skall,
Tills hela vida världen
Lagts till hans fotapall.

2 Stå upp, stå upp för Jesus,
Hör krigstrumpetens ljud,
Ryck fram, där striden rasar,
Och slå ett slag för Gud,
Drag manligt, oför färadt
Framåt mot slutna led,
Låt faran elda modet
Och makt med makt slå ned.

3 Stå upp, sta upp för Jesus,
Men i hans kraft allen.
Ej köttslig arm här hj¨lper,
Ej d¨dlig hjältes ben.
Tag nådesordets rustning,
Och vaka, bed med flit,
Och hvarest faran, plikten
Dig kallar, skynda dit.

4 Stå upp, stå upp för Jesus,
Ej striden blifver lång;
Snart ofredsåskor tystna,
Snart ljuder segersång,
Ty den, som öfvervinner,
Skall lifvets krona få
Och inför Gud och lammet,
Med evig ära stå.
