1 Rise, arise! Rise, arise!
Zion, rise to greet thy King!
Open wide the gates before Him!
Let the glad hosannas ring!
Haste to worship and adore Him!
Hark, the watchman on the mountain cries:
"Rise, arise! Rise, arise!"

2 Weep no more! Weep no more!
Zion, dry thy bitter tears!
Cast away all gloom and sadness,
For the Shiloh now appears,
Who shall turn thy grief to gladness!
Day has dawned! Arise! The night is o’er!
Weep no more! Weep no more!

3 O rejoice! O rejoice!
Christ doth come, as long foretold!
The Messiah long expected,
The incarnate Word behold!
Though by kings of earth rejected,
Hail Him Lord of all with mighty voice!
O rejoice! O rejoice!

4 Crown Him King! Crown Him King!
His exalted Name confess!
From His heavenly throne descending,
Jesus, Lord of righteousness,
Bringeth joy and peace unending!
O let heart and tongue His praises sing!
Crown Him King! Crown Him King!

5 Worship Him! Worship Him!
Worship at His sacred feet!
Hail the Son of God thy Saviour!
Haste, thy longed for Bridegroom greet!
Come, receive His kingly favor!
Zion, haste thy lamp of faith to trim!
Worship Him! Worship Him!

Author: Anna B. Hoppe

Anna Hoppe was born on May 7, 1889 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She left school after the eighth grade and worked as a stenographer. She began writing patriotic verses when she was very young and by the age of 25 she was writing spiritual poetry. After some of her poems appeared in the Northwestern Lutheran, a periodical of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, they came to the attention of Dr. Adolf Hult of Augustana Seminary, Rock Island, Illinois. He influenced her to write her Songs for the Church Year (1928). Several hymnals include her work, which was usually set to traditional chorale melodies, although she also made a number of translations. She died on August 2, 1941 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
