Kate Rusby Awake, Arise Good Christians Lyrics

Last updated: 04/16/2012 11:00:00 AM

Awake, arise good Christians, let nothing you dismay,
For unto us a saviour was born upon this day,
The self-same moon was shining, that now is in the sky,
When a holy band of angels came down from God on high.

[Chorus:]
Hosannah! Hosannah! To Jesus we'll sing,
Hosannah! Hosannah! To Jesus we'll sing,

Fear not, we bring good tidings, for on this happy morn,
The promised One, the saviour, in Bethlehem's town was born!"
Up rose the simple shepherds, all with a joyful mind,
"Then let us go in haste," they say, "This holy child to find".

[Chorus]

And like unto the shepherds, we wander far and near,
And bid you wake, good Christians, the joyful news to hear,
Awake, arise, good Christians, let nothing you dismay.
Remember Christ our saviour was born upon this day.

[Chorus]

[Repeat first verse]
