Awake and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb;
Wake ev'ry heart and ev'ry tongue
To praise the Saviour's name.

Sing of his dying love;
Sing of his rising pow'r;
Sing how he intercedes above
For those whose sins he bore.

Sing, till we feel our hearts
Ascending with our tongues;
Sing, till the love of sin departs,
And grace inspires our songs.

Sing on your heav'nly way,
Ye ransom'd sinners sing:
Sing on, rejoicing ev'ry day
In Christ th'eternal King.

Soon shall ye here him say
Ye blessed children come,
Soon will he call you hence away,
To take his wand'rers home.
