1 O spirit, freed from earth,
Rejoice, thy work is done!
The weary world's beneath thy feet,
Thou brighter than the sun!
2 Arise, put on the robes
That the redeemed win;
Now sorrow hath no part in thee,
Thou sanctified within!
3 Awake, and breathe the air
Of the celestial clime!
Awake to love which knows no change,
Thou who hast done with time!
4 Awake, lift up thine eyes!
See, all heaven's host appears!
And be thou glad exceedingly, --
Thou, who hast done with tears.
5 Ascend! thou art not now
With those of mortal birth;
The living God hath touched thy lips,
Thou who hast done with earth!
