Awake and Arise

Awake and Arise
  • 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.
  • Text: Theodore E. Curtis, 1872-1957. (c) 1984 IRI
    Music: Carolee Curtis Green, b. 1940. (c) 1984 IRI
