1 Awake! awake! put on thy strength,
Church of the living God,
Shine forth! shine forth! thy light is come,
Its beam diffuse abroad.
To nations that in darkness wait,
Send forth thy heralds bold,
‘Til ‘round the earth from pole to pole,
The tidings shall be told,
‘Til ‘round the earth from pole to pole,
The tidings shall be told.

2 They plead send help! our Country’s sons
From snow-clad mount to sea;
Send forth! send forth the Bread of Life
O hear your brothers’ plea;
And Asia’s millions join the cry,
With Afric’s starving throng,
While distant islands of the sea,
The plaintive strain prolong.
While distant islands of the sea,
The plaintive strain prolong.

3 They come! they come! the ransomed ones,
Where’er on earth their homes,
Lift up! lift up thine eyes and see,
At last thy triumph comes.
O glorious hour! the voice of heav’n
Proclaims from shore to shore,
The kingdoms of this world are Christ’s
He reigns for evermore.
The kingdoms of this world are Christ’s
He reigns for evermore.
