Cheer up, dear Christian, God’s alive,
His Spirit’s moving as of old,
His work again He will revive,
His strength has never yet grown cold.
Look up, dear Christian, God is here
To bless His people as He moves;
Come, wipe away your falling tear,
Your victory He now approves.
Awake, dear Christian, God will rise,
His work’s not even close to done;
Let Satan all his plans devise,
God’s work is only just begun.
Rejoice, dear Christian, God’s the same,
He does not change or lose His might;
His works and love by faith proclaim
And see Him put your foes to flight.
