1 Awake! Awake!
Behold the orient light!
Awake! Awake!
The eastern sky is bright!
Awake! Awake!
For ended is the night!
The Crucified is glorified,
He lives again!

Refrain:
Awake! Thou that sleepest, arise from the dead,
Awake! Thou that sleepest and Christ shall give thee light;
For now is Christ risen,
For now is Christ risen,
For now is Christ risen, from the dead;
Awake! Awake!
Awake! Awake!

2 Awake! Awake!
‘Tis Resurrection Day!
Awake! Awake!
The stone is rolled away;
Awake! Awake!
Thy King shall reign for aye;
The strife is done, the vict’ry won,
He lives again! [Refrain]

3 Awake! Awake!
The Galilean greet,
Awake! Awake!
And worship at His feet;
Awake! Awake!
Glad songs of praise repeat;
Dark portals shine with light divine,
He lives again! [Refrain]
