WHEN I WAKE UP TO SLEEP NO MORE 


Key of A, CAPO 2


INTRO
G

VERSE 1
G
What a glad thought some wonderful morning

Just to hear Gabriel's trumpet sound

When I wake up (when I wake up)
            D
To sleep no more (to sleep no more)
G
Rising to meet our blessed redeemer

With a glad shout I'll leave the ground

When I wake up (when I wake up)
    D       G        C        G      
To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


CHORUS
G
When I wake up (some glad morning)

To sleep no more (jewels adorning)

How happy I'll be (over in glory)
                 D
On the beautiful shore (telling the story)
         G
With the redeemed of all the ages

Praising the one who rised o'er

When I wake up (when I wake up)
    D       G         C        G
To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


VERSE 2
Glory to God I'll have a new body
Changed in a twinkling of an eye
When I wake up (when I wake up)
To sleep no more (to sleep no more)
Leaving behind all troubles and trials
Bound for the city up on high
When I wake up (when I wake up)
To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


(CHORUS)
