1 Uprouse you! Soldiers of the cross,
And let your banner fly;
Ring out the tale of Jesus’ love,
And raise your songs on high:
Tell all the nations how He died,
To save the world from sin;
Proclaim the kingdom’s open gates,
That all may enter in!
2 Arouse you to your noble task,
To win a dying world,
And rest not till in every land
Christ’s banner be unfurled!
O never let your voice be stilled,
Your lifelong struggle cease,
Till all the earth shall worship Him,
Th’eternal Prince of Peace.
3 Then forward, to the battle press,
Ye ransomed sons of light;
Your dauntless souls shall victory gain
In every long-drawn fight;
Till ye before the throne of God
Your joyful captives bring,
And with the crown upon your brow,
His endless praises sing!
