Hymn/Song Information

Awake our drowsy souls And burst the




Awake, our drowsy souls,
And burst the slothful band;
The wonders of this day
Our noblest songs demand:
Auspicious morn, thy blissful rays
Bright seraphs hail, in songs of praise.


At thy approaching dawn,
Reluctant death resign'd
The glorious Prince of life,
In dark domains confin'd:
Th' angelic host round him bends,
And he amid their shouts ascends.


All hail, triumphant Lord;
Heaven with hosannas rings;
While earth, in humbler strains,
Thy praise responsive sings:
"Worthy art thou, who once wast slain,
Through endless years to live and reign."


Gird on, great Prince, thy sword;
Ascend thy conq'ring car;
While justice, truth, and love,
Maintain the glorious war:
Victorious, thou thy foes shalt tread,
And sin and hell in triumph lead.


Make bare thy potent arm,
And wing th' unerring dart,
With salutary pangs,
To each rebellious heart;
Then dying souls for life shall see,
Num'rous as drops of morning dew.


Then shall the spacious earth
Beneath thy sceptre bend;
And peace her olive-branch,
And balmy wings extend;
The dews of heaven enrich the ground,
And paradise shall bloom around.
