Representative Text

Awake, awake, with cheerful heart and voice,
To Zion’s God our sweetest anthem rise;
Awake, awake, let heav’n and earth rejoice,
And shout aloud in tuneful strain Jehovah’s praise,
And shout aloud in tuneful strain Jehovah’s praise.

He crowns the year with mercy,
He fills our cup with joy,
His love is everlasting,
Let praise our tongues employ;
His blessings fall around us
Like dew and summer showers,
He cheers the path before us,
And makes it bright with flowers,
He cheers the path before us,
And makes it bright with flowers.

He is watching kindly o’er us,
Bending low our song to hear,
And we know with ev’ry moment
Guardian angels hover near,
And we know with ev’ry moment
Guardian angels hover near.

Joyful, joyful, glorify his name,
Now in his temple grateful homage pay,
Hail him, hail him, join the loud acclaim,
Sing hallelujah, worship him today’
Shout, shout, come with one accord,
Sing hallelujah, praise ye the Lord,
Sing hallelujah, praise ye the Lord.
