“And sing the day!” Choirmaster called,
“Awaken and rejoice;
For here on Sunday morning’s tide
All shout with glory’s voice.”
The members heard and lifted high
Their voice in one accord
To raise the roof on lofty bough
And sing unto the Lord.
They waited as their voices rose
To see what would become
Of heaven-bound uplifted praise
And prayers sent up as one.
Then in the midst of all the noise
Yes, one by one they felt
There in their hearts the Spirit came
And one by one they knelt.
