293- Awake! Jerusalem, Awake!
Awake! Jerusalem, awake!
No longer in thy sins lie down;
The garment of salvation take,
Thy beauty and thy strength put on.
Shake off the dust that blinds thy sight,
And hides the promise from thine eyes:
Arise, and struggle into light;
The great Deliverer calls, Arise!
Shake off the bands of sad despair;
Zion, assert thy liberty;
Look up, thy broken heart prepare,
And God shall set the captive free.
Vessels of mercy, sons of grace,
Be purged from every sinful slain;
Be like your Lord, His word embrace,
Nor bear His hallowed name in vain.
