Stand Like the Brave

Good morning dear friends! What a lovely Lord’s day is is! I was listening to some hymns this morning which lead to my looking up a few songs and their authors on cyberhymnal.org. And what did I find? An amazing and encouraging song written by Fanny Crosby titled “Stand Like the Brave.” Perhaps you have sung it before? I never have, but am so delighted to find it! I just hope that this song may be a blessing to you as you go through your day. Let us be brave soldiers for Christ; by his strength we can!  If you would like to hear the tune of this song, please go here. 

 

Stand Like the Brave

O Christian, awake! ’tis the Master’s command;
With helmet and shield, and a sword in thy hand,
To meet the bold tempter, go, fearlessly go,
Then stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe.

Refrain

Stand like the brave, stand like the brave,
Stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe.

The cause of thy Master with vigor defend;
Be watchful, be zealous, and fight to the end;
Wherever He leads thee, go, valiantly go,
Then stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe.

Refrain

Press on, never doubting, thy Captain is near,
With grace to supply, and with comfort to cheer;
His love like a stream in the desert will flow;
Then stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe.

 

May Jesus Christ bless you!

With love,

Frannie
