Look Up; Lift Up.
*  *  *
(Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic.)
Mine eyes have seen the tokens of an-
   other Pentecost,
Mine ears have heard the gath'ring of a
   dedicated host,
My soul has felt the presence of the pro-
   mised Holy Ghost,
       Our God is marching on.
   Look up, lift up, hallelujah!
        Look up, lift up, hallelujah!
   Look up, lift up, hallelujah!
       Our league is marching on.

There's fire of consecration that is kind-
   ling in our youth,
They are vowing hearty service to the
   Master and His truth,
Their faith is pure and ardent, and their
   work's a gospel proof,
       Our youth are marching on.

There's a fervor of revival burning bright
   in many hearts,
There's glow of gen'rous loyalty their
   noble purpose starts,
'Tis the Spirit of the Father and the zeal
   that Christ imparts.
       Our church is marching on.

They unfurl the Epworth banner, and,
   behold, the thousands rise!
They are looking up in pray'r to Him
   enthroned beyond the skies,
They are lifting up their brother from
   the ruin where he lies,
       Our league is marching on.
