Christ My Song - 666
Wake thee, O Zion, thy mourning is ended - The day of joy
(Ray Palmer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The day of joy.
"The Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended." (Isaiah 60,20)
2. Wake thee, O Zion, his spirit of power
to newness of life is awakening the dead;
array thee in beauty, and greet the glad hour
that brings thee salvation through Jesus who bled.
3. Saviour, we gladly, with voices resounding,
loud as the thunder our chorus would swell;
till from the mountains its echoes rebounding,
to all the wide world of salvation shall tell.
Ray Palmer, in: The Poetical Works of Ray Palmer, 1876, 54.
(3,3 orig.: till from rock, wood, and mountain its echoes rebounding,)
