1 Heir of the kingdom, O why dost thou slumber?
Why art thou sleeping so near thy blest home?
Wake thee, arouse thee, and gird on thine armor,
Speed, for the moments are hurrying on.
2 Earth's mighty nations, in strife and commotion,
Tremble with terror, and sink in dismay;
Listen, 'tis naught but the chariot's loud rumbling;
Heir of the kingdom, no longer delay.
3 Stay not, O stay not for earth's vain allurements!
See how its glory is passing away;
Break the strong fetters the foe hath bound o'er thee;
Heir of the kingdom, turn, turn thee away.
4 Keep the eye single, the head upward lifted;
Watch for the glory of earth's coming King;
Lo! o'er the mountaintops light is now breaking;
Heir of the kingdom, rejoice ye and sing.
