1. Awake and watch! the light is dawning;
Awake! the night will soon be gone;
In Orient sky there gleams the morning—
Arise, and gird thine armor on.

Refrain
Awake! the night will soon be gone;
Arise and gird thine armor on!
Awake! the night will soon be gone;
Arise and gird thine armor on!

2. The Day Star bright o’er all is shining—
Awake and hail the coming day!
Renew thy strength, cease all repining,
Awake, arise, and watch and pray. [Refrain]

3. There waits for thee a heavenly greeting;
Haste then, thy Master’s call obey;
Soon, soon shall end thy night of weeping;
Thy God shall wipe thy tears away. [Refrain]

4. The King! the King! the call comes ringing;
O Church of Christ! O Zion free!
Look up and join the heavenly singing;
Thy King is coming soon for thee. [Refrain]
