Representative Text

1 O city of David arouse from rest,
From slumber and dreaming arise!
Messiah long promised is now thy guest,
Come, join in the song of the skies!

Refrain:
His name shall be called Jesus,
Redeemer, Immanuel,
His name shall be called Jesus,
His pow’r the world shall win,
His name shall be called Jesus,
Redeemer, Immanuel,
His name shall be called Jesus,
For He shall save from sin.

2 O city of David awake! rejoice!
A Saviour to thee hath been giv’n,
Come welcome His presence with heart and voice,
Come join in the gladness of Heav’n. [Refrain]

3 O city of David, awake, awake,
Behold all the skies are alight,
The gateways of heaven are swung ajar,
Joy comes to the world this glad night. [Refrain]
