Representative Text

1 Awake, awake, ye Zion, and lend a listening ear!
The coming of the Lord, is quickly drawing near;
I now, His chosen messenger, this timely warning bring:
My business here, most certainly, is for my conquering king.

Give heed to God’s entreaty, give heed to God’s command;
Obey the voice of mercy, and you shall safely stand.

2 O Church of God, arise, prepare to meet your Lord;
Behold, I quickly come, thus saith He in His word;
I, now, His chosen messenger this timely warning give:
Prepare, prepare most carefully, your Bridegroom to receive. [Refrain]

3 O, sinner, heed the message, it comes from Christ the Lord;
Repent! Repent! Repent! Prepare to meet thy God!
Behold the cross, Mt. Calvary, His piercèd feet and hands!
And gladly, cheerfully obey the Savior’s kind commands. [Refrain]

4 Fear God, fear God, O sinner, naught else you then need fear;
Give glory to His name, and worship Him most dear;
That dreadful time, the judgment day, most surely is at hand!
Now heed this timely warning, and thus prepare to stand. [Refrain]
