John Harbison

Sleepers, wake. The Watchman calls.
Midnight is here.
Sleepers, wake. Stand up.
City of Jerusalem, raise your eyes,
Arise, lift your lamps,
Prepare to meet the Bridegroom.
Alleluia. Arise, light your torches now,
and go to meet Him.

Text: Philipp Nicolai (English paraphrase) Verse 1
