Title: Awake, Awake! Put on Thy Strength, O Zion
Composer: William Bowen Chinner
Original text and translations
Thus saith the Lord, the Lord of Hosts, the Holy One of Israel:
Behold it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains,
and all nations shall flow unto it; for as the earth bringeth forth her bud,
so shall the Lord cause righteousness to spring forth in all nations,
and all kings shall see Thy glory.
Awake, awake! put on thy strength, O Zion;
put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city.
Shake thyself from the dust, loose thyself from the bands or thy neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth glad tidings,
that publisheth peace.
How beautiful that bringeth glad tidings,
that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth.
For the Lord shall reign for ever and ever.
