1 "Wake, awake, for night is flying," the watchmen on the heights are crying; "Awake, Jerusalem, arise!" Midnight hears the welcome voices and at the thrilling cry rejoices: "Where are the virgins pure and wise? The Bridegroom comes: Awake! Your lamps with gladness take! Alleluia! With bridal care and faith's bold prayer, to meet the Bridegroom, come, prepare!"
2 Zion hears the watchmen singing, and in her heart new joy is springing. She wakes, she rises from her gloom. For her Lord comes down all-glorious and strong in grace, in truth victorious. Her star is risen, her light is come! Now come, O Blessed One, Lord Jesus, God's own Son. Sing hosanna! We answer all in joy your call; we follow to the wedding hall.
3 Lamb of God, the heavens adore you, the saints and angels sing before you with harp and cymbals' clearest tone. Of one pearl each shining portal, where, joining with the choir immortal, we gather round your radiant throne. No eye has seen that light, no ear the echoed might of your glory; yet there shall we in victory sing shouts of joy eternally!
Here is a Serbian Christmas carol called "Angels Sing", lyrics by St. Nikolai Velimirovich, sung by Andjeli Pevaju. Hat tip to Orthodox Church Father Stephen at Glory to God for All Things. Father Stephen's post has the Serbian words with an English translation. Part of the words are:
The night so grand and placid,
a star shining over the cave,
the mother sleeping in the cave,
where the angel of Jesus hast been.
