With a joy to rely on,
From the east to the west,
Through the glory of Zion.
 
Hymn 32 • Awake, O ye people! The Savior is coming
HYMN 32. P. M.
 
1 Awake, O ye people! the Savior is coming:
He’ll suddenly come to his temple, we hear;
Repentance is needed of all that are living,
To gain them a lot of inheritance near.
To-day will soon pass, and that unknown tomorrow,
May leave many souls in a more dreadful sorrow,
Than came by the flood, or that fell on Gomorrah—
Yea, weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth.
 
2 Be ready, O islands, the Savior is coming;
He’ll bring again Zion the prophets declare;
Repent of your sins, and have faith in redemption.
To gain you a lot of inheritance there.
A voice to the nations in season is given,
To show the return of the glories of Eden,
And call the elect from the four winds of heaven,
For Jesus is coming to reign on the earth. [p. 42]
With a joy to rely on,
From the east to the west,
Through the glory of Zion.
