My brother, awake, and sing the sweet story,
Soon the day of reunion will come;
Then oh, what a wonderful singing in glory,
When all redeemed singers get home.


Then, oh, what a wonderful, wonderful singing,
When all redeemed singers get home;
Reunion, reunion, thro’ ages still ringing,
When all redeemed singers get home.

No mortal hath e’er conceived of its beauty,
That awaits the redeemed ones at home;
Be sure, my dear brother, you live up to duty,
For soon our Redeemer will come.


Keep working and sing, press onward, my brother,
Till the Savior shall bid you to come;
How sweet it will be then to meet with each other,
When all redeemed singers get home.
