Representative Text

1 Wake from intemperance!
Hear ye mercy's song!
Rouse from your festal trance!
Grasp the arm that's strong.

Chorus:
Strike for the victory!
Dash to earth the cup!
Christ gives us liberty,
Lift his banner up!

2 List to the trumpet call,
Sweet as angel voice;
Haste ere you down shall fall,
Make today your choice. [Chorus]

3 Turn from the charmer's way,
Fly the viper's breath;
Hear now the Savior say,
"I will save from death." [Chorus]

4 Sunder the chains of sin,
Now's the hour of life;
Trusting a crown to win,
Nobly meet the strife. [Chorus]
