1 Awake sad Heart, whom Sorrows drown,
Lift up thine Eyes, and cease to mourn,
Unfold thy Forehead's settled Frown;
Thy Saviour, and thy Joys return.
2 Awake sad drooping Heart, awake,
No more lament, and pine, and cry;
His Death thou ever dost partake,
Partake at last his Victory.
3 Arise; if thou do'st not withstand,
Christ's Resurrection thine may be;
O break not from the gracious hand,
Which as it rises, raises thee.
4 Chear'd by thy Saviour's Sorrows rise;
He griev'd, that thou may'st cease to grieve;
Cry with his burial Cloaths thine Eyes;
He dy'd Himself that thou may'st live.
