Rise Up, O Men of God



  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.

    Rise up, O men of God,

    In one united throng.

    Bring in the day of brotherhood

    And end the night of wrong.

    Rise up, O men of God!

    Tread where his feet have trod.

    As brothers of the Son of Man,

    Rise up, O men of God!

    Rise up! Rise up! Rise up!
