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! 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 the task; Rise up, and make her great!4. 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!
