“Rise Up, O Saints of God” (In appreciation and remembrance of mothers)

Rise up, O saints of God!  Have done with lesser things.

 Give heart and soul and mind and strength to serve the King of kings.

Rise up, O saints of God!  The kingdom tarries long.

  Bring in the day of righteousness and end the night of the wrong.

Rise up, O saints of God! The church for you doth wait,

 with strength unequal to the task, rise up and make it great.

Lift high the cross of Christ; tread where Christ’s feet have trod;

 come sisters, brothers in the faith, rise up, O saints of God.
