Awake You Sleepers

In the City of David a little child was born
In a cave near the village they struggled to stay warm
For His mother and father had come from Galilee
To pay tribute to Rome and fulfill their destiny
On the hillside the shepherds were watching o'er their sheep
When a voice out of Heaven disturbed their reverie
And the angel announced that the Savior had arrived
To bring hope to all men and provide eternal life
Awake awake you sleepers awake
Bring your gifts to Heaven's King a special offering make
Arise arise you doubters arise
Confess your sins to Him who sends forgiveness from on high
In a dream God informed them of Herod's cruel sword
So they set out for Egypt relying on the Lord
And in time they returned He became a Nazarene
Growing strong in the Word to prepare for victory
Awake awake you sleepers awake
Bring your gifts to Heaven's King a special offering make
Arise arise you doubters arise
Confess your sins to Him who sends forgiveness from on high
As a teacher and healer He brought His light to men
Then our sin crucified Him outside Yerushalayim
And He rose to His Father and there He reigns today
Interceding for sinners that mankind might be saved
Awake awake you sleepers awake
Bring your gifts to Heaven's King a special offering make
Arise arise you doubters arise
Confess your sins to Him who sends forgiveness from on high
Confess your sins to Him who sends forgiveness from on high
