ReClaim/Sola Hymn: #Sola
1. Wake, awake, for night is flying,
The watchman on the heights is crying;
Awake, Jerusalem, at last!
Midnight hears the welcome voices,
And at the thrilling cry rejoices:
Draw near, O maidens, night is past.
The bridegroom comes, awake,
Your lamps with gladness take;
Hallelujah! And for the marriage feast prepare,
For you must go to meet him there.
2. Zion hears the watchmen singing,
Her heart with joy and gladness springing,
She wakes, and rises from her gloom;
Now she sees her Lord victorious,
With graceful strength, and power glorious,
Her star is ris'n, her light is come!
Oh, come to us, dear Lord, O Jesus, Son of God,
Hallelujah! We stand with joy before your throne
Of crystal light and precious stone.
3. Now let all the heav'ns adore you,
And saints and angels sing before you,
With harps and cymbals' purest tone.
Of one pearl each shining portal,
Where we are with the choir immortal,
Of angels round your dazzling throne;
No one has seen or heard
The joy you have prepared,
Hallelujah! And so we shout and sing your praise,
Hallelujah! through endless days. Amen
