RISE, O my soul, pursue the path
By ancient heroes trod;
Ambitious view these holy men
Who lived and walked with God.
Though dead they speak in reason's ear,
And in example live;
Their faith and hope, and mighty deeds,
Still fresh instruction give.
'Twas through the Lamb's most precious blood,
They conquered every foe;
And to his power and matchless grace
Their crowns and honor owe.
Lord, may we ever keep in view
The pattern thou hast given,
And ne'er forsake the blessed road
Which led them safe to heaven.
