VERSE 1:
Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and mind and soul and strength
To serve the King of kings.

VERSE 2:
Rise up, O men of God!
The kingdom tarries long.
Proclaim the gospel to the world
And turn your grief to song.

VERSE 3:
Lift high the cross of Christ!
Tread where His feet have trod.
As brothers of the Son of Man,
Rise up, O men of God!
