The vows of God are upon you




The vows of God are on you,
Ye Christian youth, arise;
The blood of Christ has won you
Your heritage, the skies.
Rise up, cast off your fetters;
Born of celestial birth,
Ye are no longer debtors
To live alone for earth.

The vows of God are on you,
O Christian youth, arise;
The blood of Christ has won you
A home beyond the skies.



It is no idle story,
It is no dream of night,
Redeemed in Christ to glory,
Ye children of the light.
The vows of God are on you;
Rise up, and make them good;
He will at last enthrone you,
In death for you He stood.

The vows of God are on you,
O Christian youth, arise;
The blood of Christ has won you
A home beyond the skies.



Then every fetter sunder,
Aside lay every chain,
And dream no more, nor wander,
Your calling high attain.
He sets a prize before you,
Who won the prize before;
His blessed banner o’er you,
Shall float for evermore.

The vows of God are on you,
O Christian youth, arise;
The blood of Christ has won you
A home beyond the skies.



With sin, then, do not dally,
With flowers do not delay,
But round Christ’s standard rally,
As children of the day.
Rise up, no wish reserving,
Lay every weight aside;
With joy your Master serving,
For you He bled and died.

The vows of God are on you,
O Christian youth, arise;
The blood of Christ has won you
A home beyond the skies.
