Hymn 113
1. Awake! ye saints of God! awake,
Call on the Lord in mighty pray'r,
That he will Zion's bondage break,
And bring to nought the fowler's snare.

2. He will regard his people's cry—
The widow's tear—the orphan's moan;
The blood of those that slaughtered lie,
Pleads not in vain before his throne.

3. Though Zion's foes have counseled deep,
Altho' they bind with fetters strong;
The God of Jacob does not sleep—
His vengeance will not slumber long.

4. Then let your souls be stayed on God;
A glorious scene is drawing nigh:
Tho' tempests gather like a flood,
The storm, tho' fierce will soon pass by.

5. Our God in judgment will come near,
His mighty arm he will make bare:
For Zion's sake he will appear,
Then Oh! ye saints! awake, prepare!

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