Welcome to the HistoricHymns.com Hymn Details Page!
|1||Lord, Thy ransomed Church is waking
Out of slumber far and near,
Knowing that the morn is breaking
When the Bridegroom shall appear;
Waking up to claim the treasure
With Thy precious life-blood bought,
And to trust in fuller measure
All Thy wondrous death hath wrought.
|2||Praise to Thee for this glad shower,
Precious drops of latter rain
Praise, that by Thy Spirit’s power
Thou hast quickened us again;
That Thy Gospel’s priceless treasure
Now is borne from land to land,
And that all the Father’s pleasure
Prospers in Thy piercèd Hand.
|3||Praise to Thee for saved ones yearning
O’er the lost and wandering throng;
Praise for voices daily learning
To upraise the glad new song:
Praise to Thee for sick ones hasting
Now to touch Thy garment’s hem;
Praise for souls believing, tasting
All Thy love has won for them.
|4||Set our hearts, O Lord, on fire
With the love of Thy dear Name;
Touch our lips, our souls inspire
Now to spread abroad Thy fame;
Fix our eyes on Thy returning,
Keeping watch till Thou shalt come;
Loins well girt, lamps brightly burning;
Then, Lord, take Thy servants home. Amen.
|Psalm||30:5||For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
|Ephesians||5:14||Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
