Representative Text

1 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
Hear him saying, “follow me;”
In the noble Christian army
Faithful soldiers let us be.

Marching on with singing,
Sweetest music bringing
Unto him that shall reign;
Let the world before us
Hear the joyful chorus,
Hallelujah, amen.

2 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
In the early morning bright,
With the watchword on our banner,
Brave defenders of the right. [Chorus]

3 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
Through the conflict firmly stand;
For we cannot lose a battle
With our leader in command. [Chorus]

4 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
He will guide us with his eye;
He has promised if we trust him,
We shall conquer by and by. [Chorus]
