     9 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. 10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. 11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. 12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.(KJV)

     1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. 2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.(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.
