1. Zion, awake! thy slumber break;
No longer in thy sins lie down;
His garment of salvation take,
His beauty and His strength put on.
2. Shake off the dust that blinds thy sight,
And hides the promise from thine eyes;
Arise, and struggle into light;
Thy great Deliv'rer calls, Arise!
3. Vessels of mercy, sons of grace,
Be purged from ev'ry sinful stain;
Be like your Lord, his word embrace,
Nor bear his hallow'd name in vain.
