Processional Hymn  

Hymn     “Rise Up Ye Saint's of God”       HYMNAL #551

1 Rise up, ye saints of God!
Have done with lesser things,
give heart and soul and mind and strength
to serve the King of kings.

2 Rise up, ye saints of God!
His kingdom tarries long:
bring in the day of brotherhood
and end the night of wrong.

3 Lift high the cross of Christ! 
Tread where his feet have trod;
and quickened by the Spirit's power,
rise up, ye saints of God!
