DLXXXVI. Happiness approaching!

1 Awake, ye saints, and raise your eyes
And raise your voices high;
Awake, and praise that sovereign love,
That shews salvation nigh.

2 On all the wings of time it flies,
Each moment brings it near:
Then welcome each declining day!
And each revolving year!

3 Not many years their round shall run,
Nor many mornings rise,
Ere all its glories stand reveal'd
To our admiring eyes.

4 Ye wheels of nature, speed your course;
Ye mortal powers, decay;
Fast as ye bring the night of death,
Ye bring eternal day.
