Hymn/Song Information

AWAKE FROM THY SADNESS




Daughter of Zion!
awake from thy sadness!
Awake! for thy foes
shall oppress thee no more;
Bright o'er the hills
dawns the daystar of gladness--
Arise! for the night
of thy sorrow is o'er.

Daughter of Zion!
Awake from thy sadness!
Awake! for thy foes
shall oppress thee no more.



Strong were thy foes,
but the arm that subdued them,
And scattered their legions,
was mightier far;
They fled like chaff from
the scourge that pursued them:
Vain were their steeds
and their chariots of war.

Daughter of Zion!
Awake from thy sadness!
Awake! for thy foes
shall oppress thee no more.



Daughter of Zion! the power
that hath saved thee
Extolled with the harp
and the timbrel should be;
Shout! for the foe is destroyed
that enslaved thee;
Th' oppressor is vanquished,
and Zion is free.

Daughter of Zion!
Awake from thy sadness!
Awake! for thy foes
shall oppress thee no more.
