1. Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and soul and mind and strength
To serve the King of Kings.
2. Rise up, O men of God,
In one united throng.
[or His kingdom tarries long:]
Bring in the day of brotherhood
And end the night of wrong.
3. Rise up, O men of God!
The church for you doth wait,
Her strength unequal to her task;
Rise up, and make her great!
4. Rise up, O men of God!
[or 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!
