O Christian youth arise, and gird thee for the fight (Sankey)

1) O Christian youth, arise,
And gird thee for the fight;
Put on the shining shield of faith,
Trust God, and do the right.

2) Be strong, thro’ grace divine,
Walk ever in the light;
Repose no confidence in self,
Trust God, and do the right.

3) Fear not, for One is near
To show His pow’r and might;
In all thy conflicts with the foe,
Trust God, and do the right.

4) Press onward in His name,
And in His word delight;
Stand firm for Christ and for His Church,
Trust God, and do the right.
