Wake, sisters, wake! the daystar shines;
Above Ephrata’s eastern pines.
The dawn is breaking cool and calm.
Wake, sisters, wake to pray’r and psalm.

Praised be the Lord for shade and light,
For toil by day, for rest by night!
Praised be His name who deigns to bless
Our Kedar of the wilderness!

He cometh soon! at dawn or noon
Or set of sun, He cometh soon.
Our prayers shall meet Him on His way;
Wake, sisters, wake! arise and pray!
