Awake, ye Saints of God, awake!
Call on the Lord in mighty prayer
That He will Zion's bondage break
and bring to naught the tempter's snare.
Awake, ye Saints of God, awake!

With constant faith and fervant prayer,
With deep humility of soul,
With steadfast mind, and heart, prepare
To see th'e ternal purpose roll.
With steadfast mind, and heart, prepare!

Awake to righteousness; be one,
Or, saith the Lord, 'Ye are not mine!'
Yea, like the Father and the Son,
Let all the saints in union join.
Awake to righteousness, be one!
