             AWAKE, AWAKE, FOR NIGHT iS FLYING

1. Awake, awake, because night will fast gone.
   The watch men on the high places calling;
   Awake, Holy City, arise!
   Midnight hears the voices
   And happily hears the exciting call:
   Oh, where are you, you wise young women?
   The new Husband come, awake!
   Take your lamps with happiness! Praise God!
   Same new wife carefully prepare yourselves
   For meet the new Husband, now true near.'

2. Holy City hears the watch men singing,
   And all hearts full with joy,
   City awakes, and rises from sadness;
   Because the Lord comes down full glory,
   Strong in mercy, full victory in truth,
   The star finished risen, the light finished come.
   Now come, YOU blessed one,
   Lord, Jesus, God's Son, come! Save now!
   We all answer the happy call
   And follow to the wedding place.

3. Now let all the heavens honor YOU,
   Let men and angels sing before YOU,
   With clear sound of praise.
   Each gate shines,
   The place, with the always live singers,
   We meet around YOUR shining throne.
   No dream since brought,
   No ear since heard, that great glory;
   Therefore we will always
   Sing praise and joy to YOU. Amen
