     43 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44 And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely. 45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him. 46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him. 47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear. 48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me? 49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled. 50 And they all forsook him, and fled. 51 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him: 52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.(KJV)

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 ev’ry foe is vanquished 
And Christ is Lord indeed. 

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, 
Each piece put on with 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.
