    Awake and Arise

    Brightly

    1. Awake and arise, O ye slumbering nations!

    The heavens have opened their portals again.

    The last and the greatest of all dispensations

    Has burst like a dawn o’er the children of men!

    2. The dream of the poet, the crown of the ages,

    The time which the prophets of Israel foretold,

    That glorious day only dreamed by the sages

    Is yours, O ye slumbering nations; behold!

    3. Oh, lift up your voices in song and in story.

    Let banners of peace in all lands be unfurled,

    For truth, heaven-born, in its beauty and glory

    Is marching triumphantly over the world.
