The hour has come to wake from sleep,
salvation is now near at hand.
Arise and Christ will shine on you,
in glorious light you will stand.
Walk no more in death, now the sting is gone;
Spring to life, dry bones, He is come!
Awake, Sleeper, Arise!
Sing for joy, your Savior has come!
Awake, let your light shine!
All things are new, your death overcome
salvation is won.
[End: Your life has begun, Your Savior has come.)
He’s coming soon, Awake! Awake!
One day before him you’ll stand.
Walk in wisdom, love and light,
freed from hellish demands.
Walk no more in death, Christ is liberty;
fill with faith, dry soul, and be free!
The night is gone, the day at hand,
the Son breathes life into man;
Arise and put your armor on,
and sing the song of the Lamb.
Walk no more in death, Christ has crushed the night;
Sing for joy, dry bones, and rise!
