Awake, thou careless world, awake!

Author: Rist Hymnal: Chorale Book for England, The #27 (1863) Hymnal Title: Chorale Book for England, The Lyrics: Awake, thou careless world, awake! That final Judgment day will surely come; What Heav'n hath fix'd no Time can shake, Time never more shall sweep away thy doom. Know what the Lord Himself hath spoken Shall come at last and not delay: Though heav'n and earth shall pass away, His steadfast Word can ne'er be broken. Awake! thou careless world, awake! For none can tell how soon our God may please That suddenly that day should break, No human wisdom fathoms depths like these: O flee earth's base delights and pride, For as the bird is in the snare, Or ever of its foe aware, So comes that day so long denied. Yet He in love delayeth long That awful day, and grants the sinner space To turn away from sin and wrong, And mourning seek in time His love and grace. He holdeth back that best of days Until the righteous shall approve Their faith and hope, their constant love; So gentle us-ward are His ways! And those found faithful then shall see That glorious morning dawn in love and joy, Their Saviour comes to set them free, Their Judge Himself shall all their bonds destroy; He the true Joshua then shall bring His people with a mighty hand Into their promised fatherland, Where songs of victory they thall sing. Arise, and let us night and day Watch for our Lord, and study o'er His word, And in the Spirit ever pray, That we be ready when His call is heard; Arise, and let us haste to meet The Bridegroom standing at the door, That with the angels evermore We too may worship at His feet.

Awake, thou careless world, awake!

Author: Catherine Winkworth; Rist Hymnal: Lyra Germanica #2 (1861) Meter: 8.8.8.8.9.8.8.9 Hymnal Title: Lyra Germanica Lyrics: Awake, thou careless world, awake! The final day shall surely come; What Heaven hath fixed Time cannot shake, It cannot sweep away thy doom. Know, what the Lord Himself hath spoken Shall come at last and not delay; Though heaven and earth shall pass away, His steadfast word can ne'er be broken. Awake! He comes to judgment, wake! Sinners, behold His countanance In beauty terrible, and quake Condemned beneath His piercing glance. Lo! He to whom all power is given, Who sits at God's right hand on high, In fire and thunder draweth nigh, To judge all nations under heaven. Awake, thou careless world, awake! Who knows how soon our God shall please That suddenly that day should break? We fathom not such depths as these. Oh guard thee well from lust and greed; For as the bird is in the snare, Or ever of its foe aware, So comes that day with silent speed. The Lord in love delayeth long The final day, and grants us space To turn away from sin and wrong, And mourning seek His help and grace. He holdeth back that best of days, Until the righteous shall approve Their faith and hope, their constant love; So gentle us-ward are His ways! But ye, O faithful souls, shall see That morning rise in love and joy; Your Saviour comes to set you free, Your Judge shall all your bonds destroy: He, the true Joshua, then shall bring His people with a mighty hand Into their promised father-land, Where songs of victory they shall sing. Rejoice! The fig-tree shows her green, The sprining year is in its prime, The little flowers afresh are seen, We gather strength in this great time; The glorious summer draweth near, When all this body's earthly load, In light that morning sheds abroad, Shall wax as sunshine pure and clear. Arise, and let us day and night Pray in the Spirit ceaselessly, That we may heed our Lord aright, And ever in His presence be; Arise, and let us haste to meet The Bridegroom standing at the door, That with the angels evermore We too may worship at His feet.
