Representative Text

1 Stand up for Jesus! All who lead His host!
Crowned by the splendors of the Holy Ghost!
Shrink from no foe, to no temptations yield.
Urge on the triumphs of this glorious field—

Stand up for Jesus!
Stand up for Jesus!
Stand up for Jesus!

2 Stand up for Jesus! Ye of every name!
All one in prayer, and all with praise aflame!
Forget the sad estrangement of the past!
With one consent in love and peace at last— [Refrain]

3 Stand up for Jesus! Lo! at God’s right hand
Jesus Himself for us delights to stand!
Let saints and sinners wonder at His grace;
Let Jews and Gentiles blend, and all our race— [Refrain]
