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:


With purity

And liberty

We'll serve you for eternity


Glory, honour, might and merit

To Father, Son and Holy Spirit

Now and for evermore.  Amen.
