He would not stop doing what he knew was right, he preached against slavary. He lost his church. But, the YMCA of Philadelphia began sponsoring a noonday meeting which drew as many as 5000 men.
Sing first verse of Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus.
Thousands of the men said he was the most noble, brave, Christian man they had ever known. One Sunday he preached from Ex. 10:11
"Go now you that are men, and serve the Lord, since that is what you have been asking for." Thousands of the men indicated this it was what they wanted to do and dedicated themselves to serving the Lord.
Sing the second verse.
During the next week, as a break from studying, the young minister, Rev. Dubley Tyng, took a walk and went to the barn where a mule was going in circles pulling a corn shucker. George reached over to pat the mule on the neck and some how George's sleeve caught in the equipment and it pulled his arm right out by the roots.
Sing the third verse.
Rev. George Duffield, Jr. was by the bed side of Rev. Tyng and ask him what message did he want to give to the thousands of men who were his Christian brothers and loved and admired him. Tell them, "Let us all stand up for Jesus". Then he died.
The next Sunday Rev. Duffield preached Ephes. 6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then,[/b] He ended his sermon with the new hymn which he had written, Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus, after the death of his friend.
