Hymn 314Play music
1 Daughter of Zion!awake from thy sadness;
Awake, for thy foes shall oppress thee no more;
Bright o'er thy hills dawns the day-star of gladness;
Arise, for the night of thy sorrows is o'er,
Arise, for the night of thy sorrows is o'er.
2 Strong were thy foes; but the Arm that subdued them
And scattered their legions, was mightier far;
Driven like chaff by the scourge that pursued them,
All vain were their steeds and their chariots of war,
All vain were their steeds and their chariots of war.
3 Daughter of Zion!the Power that hath saved thee
Extolled with the harp and the timbrel shall be;
Shout !for the foe is destroyed that enslaved thee,
Th'o ppressor is vanquished, and Zion is free,
Th' oppressor is vanquished, and Zion is free.
