The bride adorned in holy attire
Rises from the womb of the dawn ready for battle.
As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland
His head adorned like a priest
As a bride adorns herself with her jewels
In the beauties of holiness.

Awake, awake
Clothe yourself in strength, O Daughter of Zion
Clothe yourself in beautiful garments
With garments of salvation
A robe of righteousness
A necklace of mercy and truth
A heart adorned with a gentle and quiet spirit
Purified in obedience to the truth
A heart of tender mercy full of peace
Be clothed in compassion, kindness, humility,
Forgiveness, gentleness and patience
Thankful hearts bound by love dwelling in perfect unity.

Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name
Bring an offering, a sacrifice of praise
Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness!
Tremble before Him with reverent fear.

Thankful hearts bound by Christ’s love dwell in perfect unity
A precious oil
A sweet, sweet scent flowing down from the head
Flowing down off the hem of His robe
Anointed heads
Anointed with the oil of joy
By the hand of the Lord GOD Almighty
Righteousness and praise will spring up before all the nations
The bride adorned in a garment of praise
An everlasting crown of joy upon her head.

Sing, O Daughter of Zion
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart
The Bridegroom comes to dance over you with singing
Behold, the Bridegroom comes to dwell in your midst
Sing, O Daughter of Zion
Praise the beauty of His holiness
Give thanks to the LORD, for His love endures forever!
