Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the Lord, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord against the mighty.@Judges 5:23

Arise! To the help of the Lord, arise!
All ye who love Him, the simple and wise;
He bids you to labor, to list to His call:
To the help of the Lord come now, great and small!

Refrain

To the help of the Lord arise, arise!
Ye who believe in His holy, holy Word;
Ye who have tested His cleansing power;
Arise at His call this very hour.

Go forth! To the help of the Lord, go forth!
Souls are in travail and seek the new birth;
The harvest is ready, the fields are all white;
Go ye forth! go ye forth, ere cometh the night!

To the help of the Lord arise, arise!
Leaning for strength on His own sure Word, sure Word;
Use every talent and every power;
Arise and go forth this very hour.

Arouse! for the sound of the trumpet’s blast
Soon will give warning, and day will be past;
With truth be ye girded; now take sword and shield;
To the work! to the work! Oh, faint not, nor yield!

To the help of the Lord arise, arise!
Led by His hand and His own sure Word, sure Word;
Burnish your armor, withhold no power;
Arise at His call this very hour.
