Quit you like men

Representative Text

1 There's a voice comes ringing o'er the world today,
Quit you like men, be strong,
'Tis the Master calleth, now the voice obey,
Quit you like men, be strong.
Stalwart men are needed in the cause of right,
Who will spread the message of the gospel light,
Faithful men, who never falter in the fight;
Quit you like men, be strong.

Watch ye, watch ye,
Stand fast in the faith,
Watch ye, watch ye,
Quit you like men, be strong.

2 If in ev'ry conflict you would vict'ry win,
Quit you like men, be strong,
In the mighty battle with the hosts of sin,
Quit you like men, be strong.
Dare to stand where others in the conflict fall,
Dare to answer promptly to the Master's call,
Go where duty beckons, let no fear appall,
Quit you like men, be strong. [Refrain]

3 Gird you then for action, take the Spirit's sword,
Quit you like men, be strong,
To the true and faithful there is rich reward,
Quit you like men, be strong.
When the battle's ended and the victry's won,
When you cease your toiling at the set of sun,
O the joy that waits you in the glad "well done,"
Quit you like men, be strong. [Refrain]

Yet from a life of sorrow and hardship he went on to bring joy to millions of Americans with his songs and poetry. As a child, he received virtually no education or religious training. He worked in a woolen mill and as a shoe clerk. The last Methodist camp meeting in Bolton was in 1847. Tullar became a Methodist at age 19 at a camp meeting near Wat… Go to person page >
