The United Methodist Hymnal


Rise Up, O Men of God

1.	Rise up, O men of God! 
	Have done with lesser things. 
	Give heart and mind and soul and strength 
	to serve the King of kings.

2.	Rise up, O men of God! 
	The 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.	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!
