Representative Text

1 Arise, O Zion! rise and shine,
Behold thy light is come;
The glorious conqu'ring King is near,
To take his exiles home;
His Spirit now is pouring out,
To set poor captives free;
The day of wonder now is come,
The year of Jubilee.

2 The glorious gospel of the Lord,
Is spreading far and near;
And those who hear the quick'ning word,
Are mov'd with godly fear;
But soon they tell to all around,
That Christ has set them free;
The day of wonder now is come,
The year of Jubilee.

3 Brave soldiers dear, pray don't you fear,
Our Captain is above:
Behold him stand at God's right hand,
His bowels melt with love;
O Christians, help to praise the Lamb,
Who died for you and me;
The day of wonder now is come,
The year of Jubilee.

4 Methinks I hear the watchmen cry,
O Zion now be bold;
Ye saints, now raise your voices high,
And sing, both young and old;
The year of my redeem'd is come,
To set poor sinners free;
The day of wonder now is come,
The year of Jubilee.

Ordained a Methodist circuit riding preacher, Granade was referred to by the Nashville Banner as the "wild man of Goose Creek" (Sumner County, Tennessee) and was also variously known as "the poet of the backwoods" and "the Wild Man of Holston." Granade worked in part in the world of shape-note singing in the Shenandoah Valley, where a variety of musical sources, both sacred and profane, were at play.
