1 Wake, wake the song! our glad jubilee
Once more we hail with sweet melody,
Bringing our hymn of praise unto Thee,
Oh, most holy Lord!
Praise for Thy care by day and by night,
Praise for the homes by love made so bright;
Thanks for the pure and soul-cheering light
Beaming from Thy word. Then

Wake, wake the song! our glad jubilee
Once more we hail with sweet melody,
Bringing our hymn of praise unto Thee,
Oh, most holy Lord!

2 Marching to Zion, dear blessed home!
Lord, by thy mercy hither we come;
Guide us we pray where’er we may roam,
Keep us in Thy fear;
Fill every soul with love all divine,
Now cause Thy face upon us to shine;
Grant that our hearts may truly be Thine
All the coming year. Then [Refrain]

3 Yet once again the anthem repeat,
Join every voice the Master to greet;
Love’s sacrifice we lay at His feet,
In His temple now;
Jesus, accept the off’ring we bring,
Blending with songs the odors of spring;
Still of Thy wondrous love we will sing
Till in heaven we bow. Then [Refrain]
