Lyrics

Zion hears the watchmen singing,
And all her heart with joy is springing;
She wakes, she rises from her glo,Om;
For her Lord comes down all glorious,
The strong in grace, in truth victorious.
Her Star is risen, her Light is come.
Ah come, Thou blessèd One, God’s own belovèd Son:
Alleluia! We follow till the halls we see
Where Thou hast bid us sup with Thee.
