Wake the Song

Representative Text

Wake the song, wake the song, wake the song, wake the song of jubilee;
Wake the song, wake the song, wake the song, wake the song of jubilee;
Let it echo o'er the sea, let it echo o'er the sea.
Wake the song, wake the song, wake the song, wake the song of jubilee;
Loud as mighty thunders roar, when it breaks, when it breaks upon the shore;
Wake the song, Wake the song,
Let it echo o'er the sea.
Let it echo o'er the sea, let it echo o'er the sea.
Wake the song, wake the song, wake the song, wake the song of jubilee;
Loud as mighty thunders roar, when it breaks, when it breaks upon the shore;
Wake the song, Wake the song,
Let it echo o'er the sea.
See Jehovah's banner furled,
Sheathed the sword, He speaks, 'tis done, now the kingdoms of this world are the kingdoms of the Son;
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, Amen;
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, Amen.
