Full Text

1 Let the nations awake to the signs of the times,
A voice that is mighty and strong,
Like the thunder of waters, proclaims to the world,
Jehovah is marching along.

Refrain:
Then wake, let us stand with our face to the right,
And tread ‘neath our feet ev’ry wrong;
The kingdoms of darkness are trembling with fear,
Jehovah is marching along.

2 Let the Christian awake to the signs of the times,
For long at the post some have slept;
Arise, for the Master may suddenly come,
And frown at the watch you have kept. [Refrain]

3 Let the young me awake to the signs of the times,
God calls you, because ye are strong;
You can work in the vineyard with ardor and zeal,
For him who is marching along. [Refrain]

4 Careless sinner, awake to the signs of the times,
Give Jesus your heart while you may;
Oh, be washed in his blood—he will make you his child,
And take your transgressions away. [Refrain]
