Lyrics

Let us awake out of sleep,
And be active for the Lord,
Let us awake, let us awake.
Let us go forth with a will,
Trusting to His blessèd word;
Let us awake, let us awake.

Refrain

Let us awake, let us awake;
Let us prepare our armor strong,
Let us go forth in the fight,
Let us be bold for the right,
Then we’ll join the victor’s song.

Let us be loyal to Christ
In the conflict that is on;
Let us be brave, let us be brave;
Let us be true in the strife,
’Till the victory is won;
Let us be brave, let us be brave.

Refrain

Let us arise in our might,
Jesus calls for volunteers,
Let us arise, let us arise;
Let us equip for the fight,
Casting off all doubts and fears,
Let us arise, let us arise.
