1 Awake, Jerusalem, awake,
No longer in thy sins lie down:
The garment of salvation take,
Thy beauty and thy strength put on.
2 Shake off the dust that blinds thy sight,
And hides the promise from thine eyes,
Arise and struggle into light,
Thy great Deliverer calls, Arise!
3 Shake off the bands of sad despair,
Zion assert thy liberty,
Look up, thy broken heart prepare,
And God shall set the captive free.
4 Vessels of mercy, sons of grace,
Be purged from every sinful stain,
Be like your Lord, his word embrace,
Nor bear his hallowed name in vain.
5 The Lord shall in your front appear,
And lead the pompous triumph on;
His glory shall bring up the rear,
And perfect what his grace begun.
