Author: Thomas Cotterill; Elizabeth Scott Hymnal: Book of Worship with Hymns and Tunes #48 (1899) Hymnal Title: Book of Worship with Hymns and Tunes Lyrics: 1 Awake, ye saints, awake!
And hail this sacred day;
In loftiest songs of praise
Your joyful homage pay:
Come, bless the day that God hath blest,
The type of heaven's eternal rest.
2 On this all-glorious morn
The Lord of life arose;
He burst the bars of death,
And vanquished all our foes:
And now He pleads our cause above,
And reaps the fruit of all His love.
3 All hail, triumphant Lord!
Heaven with hosannas rings,
And earth in humbler strains,
Thy praise responsive sings:
Worthy the Lamb, that once was slain,
Through endless years to live and reign!
Amen. Topics: Lord's Day Blessings of; Lord's Day Emblem of eternal rest Tune Title: ZEBULON
Awake, ye saints, awake!
