Wake, awake! Make preparations;
The heralds shout their exhortations:
Now is the Lord's appointed hour.
Midnight's chimes ring out proclaiming
The time has come - no more delaying;
The royal Son arrives in power.
We listen and we hear
His footsteps drawing near
With lamps alight
And burning bright
We watch for him to come in sight.
(VERSE 2 )
As we join the celebration
Our hearts are filled with expectation
And nothing can our praise contain.
See the Bridegroom comes all-glorious
With might and majesty, victorious:
The everlasting King of Kings.
Praise the all-conquering Lord
Our crown and our reward:
Both great and small
Before you fall
And gladly follow where you call.
To your throne, O Lord, ascending
From human tongues and angels blending
Our songs of worship now arise.
Through the open gates resplendent
With all the faithful saints triumphant
We enter into paradise.
As one we join to sing
Our adoration bring:
We'll serve you for eternity
Glory, honour, might and merit
To Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Now and for evermore. Amen.
