Hymn/Song Information

Awake O Zion's daughter Rise Shake off




Awake, O Zion's daughter! Rise;
Shake off your dust, no more repine;
Let gladness sparkle in your eyes,
In all your fairest garments shine!


Behold, your King, expected long,
In humble pomp at length appears;
Amidst yon priaseing infant throng
His meek, majestic head he rears.


No fiery steed he rides: he sways
No tinsel rod of earthly reign;
A colt, ne'er us'd till now, conveys
To you your lowly Prince divine.


Here's no vain crowd, no gaudy show;
Babes taught of Heav'n resound his praise,
His path the Galileans strow
With branches of triumphant peace.


The blind and lame, by him reliev'd,
His saving light and strength proclaim;
His foes with shame and spite are griev'd
To see his works and hear his fame.


Hosanna! thronging myriads shout,
Jehovah brings salvation nigh!
Hosanna! ev'ry babe cries out,
Jehovah, send posterity!


To him who, in Jehovah's name,
Draws nigh to save, all praise belongs,
Peach reigns in heaven, with every beam
Of glory in the highest ones.


Salvation sing to David's Son!
All blessings sing to Israel's King!
His kingdom blessed be alone,
And bless'd the people of his reign.


In all the earth how worthy is,
O Lord our God, thy glorious name!
From infant lips thou perfect'st praise,
Thy strength, to put thy foes to shame!
