Arm Of These Thy Soldiers

Arm these Thy soldiers, Mighty Lord,
With shield of Faith and SPIRIT’s Sword.
Forth to the battle may they go
And boldly fight against the foe.

With banner of The Cross unfurled,
They overcome the evil world
And so at last Receive from Thee
The palm and Crown of Victory.

Come, ever Blessèd SPIRIT, come
And make Thy Servants’ heart Thy Home.
May each a Living Temple be
Hallowed forever, Lord, to Thee.

Enrich that Temple’s Holy Shrine
With sevenfold gifts of Grace Divine;
With Wisdom, Light, and Knowledge Bless,
With Counsel, Strength, and Godliness.

O Trinity In Unity,
One only GOD In Persons Three,
In Whom, through Whom, by Whom, we Live,
To Thee we Praise and Glory give.

You Grant us so to use Thy Grace
That we may see Thy Glorious Face
And ever with The Heavenly Host
Praise FATHER, Son and HOLY GHOST!

Arise, The Kingdom Is At Hand

Arise, The Kingdom is at hand,
The King Is Drawing nigh;
Arise with joy, thou Faithful band,
To meet The Lord Most High!
Look up, ye souls, weighed down with care,
The Sovereign is not far;
Look up, faint hearts, from your despair,
Behold The Morning Star!

Look up, ye drooping hearts, today,
The King Is very near;
O cast your griefs and fears away,
For, lo, your Help Is Here!
Hope on, ye broken hearts, at last
The King Comes In His Might;
He Loved us in the ages past
When we lay wrapped in night.

Look up, ye souls weighed down with care,
The Sovereign Is not far!
Look up, faint hearts, from your despair,
Behold The Morning Star!
The Lord Is With us now, Who shall
The sinking spirit Feed
With Strength and Comfort at its need
To Whom e’en death shall bow.

Hope, O ye broken hearts, at last!
The King comes on In Might,
He Loved us in the ages past
When we sat wrapped in night;
Now are our sorrows o’er, and fear
And wrath to Joy give place,
Since GOD Hath Made us In His Grace
His Children evermore.

O rich The Gifts Thou Bringest us,
Thyself Made poor and weak;
O Love beyond compare that thus
Can foes and sinners seek!
For this we raise a gladsome voice
On high to Thee alone,
And evermore with thanks rejoice
Before Thy Glorious Throne.

Arise Sons Of The Kingdom

Arise, sons of the kingdom!
The King is drawing nigh;
Arise, and hail with gladness
The Ruler from on high.
Ye Christians, hasten forth!
Your praise and homage bring Him
And glad Hosannas sing Him,
Naught else your Love is worth.

Arise, ye drooping mourners!
The King is very near;
Away with grief and sorrow,
For lo! your Help is here.
Behold, in many a place—
We find Him, our Salvation,
O Blessed Consolation!
In His pure means of Grace.

Arise, ye much afflicted!
The King is now not far;
Rejoice, ye long dejected!
Here comes The Morning Star.
The Lord Will Give you Joy;
Though troubles now distress you,
With comfort He Will Bless you,
E’en death He Will Destroy.

Now hear, ye bold transgressors,
The King does well give heed
To all that ye are doing,
And to the life ye lead,
Enthralled to sin and hell;
Nothing in all Creation
Escapes His Observation
He Marketh all things well.

Be righteous, ye His subjects,
The King Is Just and True;
Prepare for Him a highway,
Make all things straight and new.
He Means all for our good
Then let us bear our crosses
That He Himself Imposes,
In an undaunted mood.

Though war and conflagration
Take all our goods away;
The Lord Is our Salvation
And heritage for aye.
E’en though our loved ones die,
Yet they are not forsaken,
But from this world are taken
To live with GOD on high

Arise, ye poor and needy!
The King Provides for you;
He comes with succor speedy,
With Mercy ever new.
He who a beast did heed
Let’s not His Children perish;
All hopes that man may cherish
He Can Fulfill indeed.

He nevermore Forsaketh
A child that feels the rod,
Who Him his Refuge maketh,
And puts his trust in GOD.
He Is our Sovereign King;
E’en death itself shall never
Those from their Master sever
Who to His Mercy cling.

Arise, ye faint and fearful!
The King now comes with Might,
His Heart hath long since Loved us,
He Makes our darkness Light.
Now are our sorrows o’er;
No wrath shall e’er befall us,
Since GOD In Grace doth Call us
His Children evermore.

Haste then, with eager footsteps,
To see your Sovereign there!
He Rides as King of Zion,
Strong, Glorious, Meek and Fair.
Draw near The Lord and give
To Him your salutation,
Who Bringeth Great Salvation,
And Bids the sinner Live.

The King In Grace Remembers
His Loved Ones here below
With gifts of Royal treasures,
Yea, doth Himself Bestow
Through His Blest Word and Grace.
O King, Arrayed in splendor,
To Thee all praise we’ll render
Here and there face to Face.

O rich the gifts Thou Bring’st us,
Thyself made poor and weak;
O Love beyond expression
That thus can sinners seek!
For this, O Lord, will we
Our Joyous tribute bring Thee,
And glad Hosannas sing Thee,
And ever grateful be.

Arise In The Name Of JESUS

ARISE IN THE NAME OF JESUS
ARISE IN THE NAME OF THE SON
TAKE YOUR PLACES IN BATTLE

Arise He Called Thee

Weary, lonely, sad, forsaken,
Humbled to a station low,
Sat a hopeless blind man begging,
By the road to Jericho.
Soon he heard the noise of footsteps,
As of waters rolling nigh;
For the Galilean Prophet
With the throng was passing by.

Refrain:
Then arise, He Calleth thee,
Sick or suff’ring, blind or lame!
JESUS Healed in Galilee,
He Is evermore the same.

When he heard that it was JESUS,
Who had healed the sin-sick soul,
Then he called aloud for mercy,
That he, too, might be made whole.
But the multitude rebuked him,
Saying he should silent be;
Yet he only called more loudly,
“Have compassion, Lord, on me!”

Paused The Master for a moment—
“Bring him hither unto Me.”
Someone ran to bear the message:
“Come, arise, He Calleth thee!”
Oh, what words of cheer and comfort!
What today could sweeter be
To the weary, sick, and suff’ring—
“Come, arise, He Calleth thee”?

Refrain

Then as he approached The Master,
Healing virtue to receive,
JESUS Said, “Thy Faith hath saved thee,
Be it as thou dost Believe.”
And the blind man’s eyes were opened,
He had proved the promise true;
Ye, who still in sickness languish,
Lo, the Master Calls for you.

Arise Come Ye Forth

Arise, come ye forth, and forever break the chain,
That long had oppressed you with sorrow and pain;
Arise, come ye forth, hear The Blessèd Lord’s Command,
And He Himself Will Guide you with a strong, strong Hand.

Refrain
Come forth, come forth, and shout the jubilee,
Come forth, come forth, The Lord Will Make you free;
Come forth from your bonds, hear The Blessèd Lord’s Command,
And He Himself Will Guide you with a strong, strong Hand.

Arise, come ye forth; will ye spend your life for naught,
When JESUS Who Loves you a ransom has Bought?
The price of His Blood, O receive It while you may;
Behold the Promised time is now; O come away.

Refrain

Arise, come ye forth, and be slaves to sin no more,
How oft your Deliv’rer Has Called you before;
Come forth from your bonds, and your Liberty receive,
Your willing hearts to JESUS give; repent, Believe.

Refrain

Arise All Souls, Arise

Arise, all souls, arise! The watch is past;
A Glory breaks above the cloud at last.
There comes a Rushing Mighty Wind again!
The Breath Of GOD is still The Life of men;
The day ascending fills the waiting skies,
All souls, arise!

It comes The Breath Of GOD through all the skies!
To Live, to Breathe with Him, all souls, arise!
Open the windows toward the shining East;
Call in the guests, and spread a wider feast,
The Lord Pours Forth as sacramental wine
His Breath Divine!

It comes a larger Life, a deeper Breath;
Arise, all souls, arise, and conquer death!
Spread forth the feast, the dew and manna fall
And angels whisper, “Drink ye of it all;
Drink of His Truth, and feed upon His Love,
With saints above!”

Arise, all souls, arise, to meet your Guest!
His Light flames from the East unto the West.
The Lord of earth and Heaven Is at the door,
He Comes to break His Bread to all His poor;
Arise and serve with Him, His Moment flies;
All souls arise!

Arise

For You Are Good, Your Love endures forever
And we rejoice in Your Unfailing Love.
Consume our praise with fire down from heaven
And fill us with Your Power from above.

Arise, arise, arise
Oh Lord, our GOD, arise!

Arise, oh Lord, within our midst
As we declare Your Righteousness;
Lift up The Name that we confess
As we proclaim Your Holiness.

Salvation comes from You alone
Oh Lamb Of GOD, The Chosen One.
That we might be Your Resting Place
We worship You, we seek Your Face.

(Christians) Are You Working

Are you working for The Master,
Are you toiling day by day?
Are you sowing seeds of kindness,
For the reapers on the way?

Hear you not The Master Calling,
For glad toilers brave and true?
Will you enter now the harvest?
For The Call is unto you.

There’s a work for all, my Brother,
Sheaves are falling by the way,
Go you forth into the harvest,
Enter now, without delay.
