When I read today that a father said to his daughter “STAND UP FOR YOURSELF,” I remembered the hymn:
STAND UP, STAND UP FOR JESUS!
The hymn has three verses and here is the beginning of verse one:
“Stand up, stand up, for Jesus! You soldiers of the cross, …”
Verse two begins like this:
“Stand up, stand up, for Jesus! Stand in his strength alone; …”
And this is the beginning of verse three (last verse):
“Stand up, stand up, for Jesus! The strife will not be long; …”
The words of the hymn are by George Duffield (1818-88) and the music is by George J. Webb.(1803-87)
I WANT TO STAND UP FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
