Description
While written for the dedication of a stained glass window, this energetic two-part anthem, with a text by J. R. Peacey, is also appropriate for the Epiphany season, Easter, Ascension, Transfiguration, and for general use.

Text
Awake, awake: fling off the night!
for God has sent a glorious light
and we who live in Christ's new day
must works of darkness put away.

Awake and sing with praises strong
in psalm and hymn and Spirit song.
Let love our works renew
with all that's good and right and true.

Let in the light, all sin expose
to Christ, whose life no darkness knows.
Before the cross expectant kneel,
that Christ may judge, and judging, heal.

Then rise, as children of the light.
Be neither proud, nor hide from sight.
Be careful how you live, and wise
to sift the truth from cunning lies.

Through Christ give thanks to God and say
to other sleepers on the way:
"Awake, and rise up from the dead,
that Christ may shine on you instead!"

--J.R. Peacey
