1 Stand up for Jesus, Christian, stand!
Firm as a rock on Ocean’s strand!
Beat back the waves of sin that roll,
Like raging floods around thy soul!

Stand up for Jesus, nobly stand!
Firm as a rock, on ocean’s strand.
Stand up, His righteous cause defend;
Stand up for Jesus, your best friend.

2 Stand up for Jesus, Christian, stand!
Sound forth his name o’er sea and land!
Spread ye his glorious word abroad,
Till all the world shall own Him Lord! [Chorus]

3 Stand up for Jesus, Christian, stand!
Lift high the cross with steadfast hand!
Till heathen lands with wond'ring eye,
Its rising glory shall descry. [Chorus]

4 Stand up for Jesus, Christian, stand!
Soon with the blest immortal band,
We’ll dwell for aye, life’s journey o’er,
In realms of light on Heaven’s bright shore. [Chorus]
