Hymns for June 28 - Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

660 Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus

1
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the cross.
Lift high His royal banner;
It must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory
His army He shall lead
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.
2
Stand up, stand up for Jesus;
The trumpet call obey;
Stand forth in might conflict
In this His glorious day.
Let all His faithful serve Him
Against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger
And strength to strength oppose.
3
Stand up, stand up for Jesus;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the Gospel armor;
Each piece put on with prayer.
Where duty calls or danger,
Be never wanting there.
4
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
This day the din of battle,
The next the victor’s song.
The soldiers, overcoming,
Their crown of life shall see
And with the King of Glory
Shall reign eternally.

662 Onward, Christian Soldiers

1
Onward Christian Solders, Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle, see His banners go!

Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus, Going on before.
2
Like a mighty army, moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading, where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.
3
Crowns and thrones may perish,
Kingdoms rise and wane,
But the Church of Jesus, constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never, ‘gainst the Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.
4
Onward, the, ye faithful, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices, in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor, unto Christ the King;
This through countless ages, men and angels sing.
