19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; 20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. 22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. 23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. 24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. 25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. 26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.(KJV)

Wake, Awake, For the Night Is Flying

1. “Wake, awake, for night is flying,” 
The watchmen on the heights are crying; 
“Awake, Jerusalem, arise!” 
Midnight hears the welcome voices 
And at the thrilling cry rejoices: 
“Oh, where are ye, ye virgins wise? 
The Bridegroom comes, awake! 
Your lamps with gladness take! 
With bridal care 
Yourselves prepare 
To meet the Bridegroom, who is near.” 

2. Zion hears the watchmen singing, 
And all her heart with joy is springing, 
She wakes, she rises from her gloom; 
For her Lord comes down all-glorious, 
The strong in grace, in truth victorious, 
Her Star is ris’n, her Light is come. 
“Now come, Thou Blessed One, 
Lord Jesus, God’s own Son, 
Hail! Hosanna! 
The joyful call 
We answer all 
And follow to the nuptial hall.” 

3. Now let all the heav’ns adore Thee, 
Let men and angels sing before Thee, 
With harp and cymbal’s clearest tone. 
Of one pearl each shining portal, 
Where, dwelling with the choir immortal, 
We gather round Thy radiant throne. 
No vision ever brought, 
No ear hath ever caught, 
Such great glory; 
Therefore will we 
Sing hymns of praise and joy to Thee.
