Stand up! stand up for Jesus

1
Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
  Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner,
  It must not suffer loss:
From vict’ry unto vict’ry
  His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished
  And Christ is Lord indeed.
  Stand up for Jesus
Ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner,
  It must not, it must not suffer loss.
2
Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
  The trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict
  In this His glorious day.
Ye that are men, now serve Him
  Against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger.
  And strength to strength oppose.
3
Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
  Stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you;
  Ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the Gospel armor,
  And, watching unto prayer,
Where duty calls, or danger,
  Be never wanting there.
4
Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
  The strife will not be long:
This day the noise of battle,
  The next the victor’s song;
To him that overcometh
  A crown of life shall be;
He, with the King of glory,
  Shall reign eternally.

The more familiar tune, “Web, ” was borrowed by an editor of a hymnal from a secular song written by George J. Webb, a song entitled “Tis Dawn, the Lark is Singing, ” which had been used for a musical show on board a ship crossing the Atlantic. Webb was born in Salisbury, England on June 24, 1803, and came to the United States in 1830. He settled in Boston and became active in the musical affairs of that city, serving as an organist of the “Old South Church” for forty years.

The less familiar yet more touching tune “Geibel” was composed by Adam Geibel especially for Duffield’s text in 1901. Adam Geibel was born in Germany, on September 15, 1885. After settling in the United States, he became an organist and a music teacher. He founded the Adam Geibel Music Company, which eventually became the Hall-Mac Company and merged later with the Rodeheaver Hall-Mac Company. Geibel became completely blind at eight years of age due to an eye infection. Yet despite his blindness, he was a skillful organist, composer, and conductor of both secular and sacred music. He was especially known for his ability to arrange for male voices.

God is able to perform marvelous things through even the most extraordinary circumstances: A dynamic young Episcopalian (Dudley Tyng), a corn threshing machine, a tragic fatal accident, a Presbyterian minister’s hymn text tribute (George Duffield), two tunes; one secular (Webb), another by a blind composer (Geibel) and the revival of 1858, the work of God in Philadelphia, still have their influence on us today with the hymn “Stand Up for Jesus. ”
