1 Awake, awake, O Christian,
The battle draweth near;
The “Daystar” brightly shineth,
The King will soon appear;
He comes His own to gather,
And lead them forth to war;
Behold, His blood-stain’d banner
Is streaming now afar.

Refrain:
Awake, awake, O Christian!
The battle draweth near;
The “Daystar” brightly shineth,
The King will soon appear.

2 Awake, awake, O Christian,
How canst thou longer sleep
To thee thy Lord is calling,
The watch for Him to keep;
Make haste, put on thine armor,
And follow in His train;
With Jesus thou must suffer,
If thou with Him would’st reign. [Refrain]

3 Awake, awake, O Christian,
Thy crown let no man take,
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
Tho’ billows round thee break;
Soon, soon the blessed welcome,
On yonder radiant shore;
“Well done,” thy joyous greeting,
When conflicts all are o’er. [Refrain]
