1 Daughter of Zion, awake from thy sadness;
Awake, for thy foes shall oppress thee no more;
Bright o'er thy hills dawns the day-star of gladness,
Arise! for the night of thy sorrow is o'er.
We’ll sound the loud timbrel o’er Egypt’s dark sea,
Jehovah hath triumphed, His people are free.
2 Strong were thy foes, but the arm that subdued them
And scattered their legions was mightier far;
They fled like the chaff from the scourge that pursued them,
O, vain were their steeds and their chariots of war. [Refrain]
