Arise, ye saints, arise
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Arise, ye saints, arise.

"He teacheth my hands to war." (Psalm 18,34)

1. Arise, ye saints, arise,
  the Lord our Leader is;
the foe before the banner flies,
  for victory is his. PDF - Midi

2. Behold! he leads the way;
  we'll follow where he goes;
we cannot fail to win the day,
  since he subdues our foes.

3. Lead on, Almighty Lord,
  lead on to victory;
encouraged by the bright reward,
  with joy we'll follow thee.

4. We'll follow thee, our guide,
  our Saviour and our King;
we'll follow thee, through grace supplied
  from heaven's eternal spring.

5. We hope to see the day
  when toil and strife shall cease;
we then shall cast our arms away,
  and dwell in endless peace.

6. This hope supports us here,
  it makes our burdens light;
'twill serve our drooping hearts to cheer
  till faith shall end in sight:

7. till, of the prize possessed,
  we hear of war no more;
and, O sweet thought! for ever rest
  on yonder peaceful shore.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 253.
