Awake You Sleepers
Awake all who sleep there, rise up from the dead,
Christ Jesus would then be your new light.
So calls you the Saviour, Son of the Godhead,
ere He judges all with His Godly might.
Awake and rise up, for the risk is so great,
so why not choose life over death as your fate?
Awake now with speed, all who sleep there in sin:
the night has long yielded to dawning.
The light of God's grace, with such joyous begin,
for centuries on earth is shining.
So great is your calling, so holy your stake,
the hours are few now, awake then, awake!
Arise from the dead then, oh sinner, and live,
so Christ can henceforth light your life’s path.
Arise from the dead, He will surely forgive,
or choose to face God in His holy wrath.
The Saviour still calls you, ‘t is still not too late;
arise from the dead now, He'll soon seal your fate.
Blest are all the saints who now walk in His light,
their Saviour has raised who were long dead.
No matter how often the day yields to night,
the dread of the darkness from them has fled.
"Awake all who sleep there, rise up from the dead,"
so calls from God's heaven, of His Church: the Head.
