Rise up, O men of God! Have done with lesser things. Give heart and mind and soul and strength To serve the King of kings.
Rise up, O men of God! The kingdom tarries long. Bring in the day of brotherhood And end the night of wrong.
Rise up, O men of God! The church for you doth wait, Her strength unequal to her task; Rise up and make her great!
Lift high the cross of Christ! Tread where His feet have trod. As brothers of the Son of Man, Rise up, O men of God!
I heard the hymn "Rise Up, O Men of God" this morning. I have always been stirred by its lyrics, especially the first stanza. God is working powerfully in my life these days calling me to "Have done with lesser things."
