O Church Arise
O church, arise and put your armor on;
Hear the call of Christ our captain;
For now the weak can say that they are
In the strength that God has given.
With shield of faith and
belt of truth
We'll stand against the devil's lies;
An army bold
whose battle cry is "Love!"
Reaching out to those in darkness.
Our call to war, to love the captive soul,
But to rage against the captor;
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith
When faced with trials on ev'ry side,
We know the outcome
And Christ will have the prize for which He died—
inheritance of nations.
Come, see the cross where love and mercy meet,
As the Son of God is
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet,
Conqueror has risen!
And as the stone is rolled away,
emerges from the grave,
This vict'ry march continues till the day
Ev'ry eye and heart shall see Him.
So Spirit, come, put strength in ev'ry stride,
Give grace for ev'ry
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant
good and faithful.
As saints of old still line the way,
triumphs of His grace,
We hear their calls and hunger for the day
When, with Christ, we stand in glory.
"O Church, Arise"
