Original text and translations
Awake, awake, put on thy strength, O Zion;
put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, thou holy city.
Shake thyself from the dust; O Jerusalem, thou holy city:
loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of peace,
that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
Break forth into joy.
Sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem.
