(Introduction: Reveille bugle wake-up call)

Awake oh slothful camp awake!
How can we rest in war?
For battles rage outside the gate
Whilst in the camp we cower.
If in the blood we have been washed
That takes our sins away, away!
Then by the Holy Spirit’s power
We live to fight each day.

So rally to our Saviour’s call
And lift His standard high;
That all may see the blood-stained cross
Where Jesus came to die.
May God forbid that it be said
We wasted precious days, yes days!
So smash the gate that keeps us in
Break out and give God praise!

We all were in His briefing room
And heard our Captain’s call;
He gave us orders one by one
Assignments for us all.
Awake oh slothful camp awake!
We cannot rest in war, yes war!
Lest Christ returns and finds us here
When we should be out there!

One Response to Awake!

  1. Cinda says:

    Hi Tom, I really enjoyed your song with the melodies and the words are powerful…Let us wake up to the call of the trumpets and be warriors in our Lord that they might come to know Jesus as we fight the good fight of faith…When we enter heaven then we can lay down our weapons of spritual warfare against the enemy of this world…Thank you so very much for your words of wisdom in this song…Your friend, Cinda
