Wake Brothers Wake


Wake, brothers, wake, the dawn is now appearing,
Light o’er the earth makes all so bright and cheering;
Loud sound the cry-the conflict now is nearing-
For God and the right.

Refrain:
On to the field, the foe is there before us,
Strike for our cause, and sing aloud our chorus,
Point to the flag that waves in triumph o’er us;
Jesus is our king.

March, comrades, march, the foe is drawing nearer,
Look o’er the field-their legions showing clearer,
Armed for the fray-O what have we that’s dearer
Than God and His cause? [Refrain]

Stand, soldiers, stand, the foe is growing bolder,
Raise up the cross, and shoulder put to shoulder;
Shout for our king, nor let our love grow colder,
For God and His truth. [Refrain]

Cheer, Christians, cheer, the word at last is spoken,
Hell and its host no longer stand unbroken,
Victory is ours-be this our only token:
In God is our trust. [Refrain]
