There’s a voice comes ringing o’er the world today,
Quit you like men, be strong;
’Tis the Master calleth, now the voice obey,
Quit you like men, be strong.
Stalwart men are needed in the cause of right,
Who will spread the message of the Gospel light,
Faithful men, who never falter in the fight;
Quit you like men, be strong.

Refrain

Watch ye, watch ye,
Stand fast in the faith;
Watch ye, watch ye,
Quit you like men, be strong.

If in every conflict you would victory win,
Quit you like men, be strong;
In the mighty battle with the hosts of sin,
Quit you like men, be strong.
Dare to stand where others in the conflict fall,
Dare to answer promptly to the Master’s call,
Go where duty beckons, let no fear appall,
Quit you like men, be strong.

Refrain

Gird you then for action, take the Spirit’s sword,
Quit you like men, be strong;
To the true and faithful there is rich reward,
Quit you like men, be strong.
When the battle’s ended and the victory’s won,
When you cease your toiling at the set of sun,
O the joy that waits you in the glad well done,
Quit you like men, be strong.

Refrain
