AUGHTER of Zion! awake from thy sadness;
Bright o'er thy hills dawns the day star of glad-
2 Strong were thy foes; but the arm that subdued them,
And scattered their legions, was mightier far; They fled, like the chaff, from the scourge that pursued them;
Vain were their steeds and their chariots of war. <3 Daughter of Zion! the power, that hath saved thee, [be: Extolled with the harp and the timbrel should Shout, for the foe is destroyed that enslaved thee, Th' oppressor is vanquished, and Zion is free.
