Representative Text

1 Awake, arise, and greet the morn
That fills the world with joy;
Let every heart o’erflow with song,
And praise each tongue employ.

Praise the name of Jesus,
Blessèd name of Jesus,
Who hears us when we call;
Notes the soul’s petition,
Feels each heart’s contrition,
Whose blood was shed for all.

2 He comes, He comes, the Prince of peace!
On this triumphal day
To shed the light of hope divine,
And banish night for aye. [Refrain]

3 He breaks the bonds of death in twain,
That hearts who own their king
Shall rise with Him, forevermore
His boundless love to sing. [Refrain]

4 Ring on, ring on, ye silvery bells!
Peal forth the glad refrain;
Lo, He is risen who was dead!
Behold, He lives again! [Refrain]
