Milgrove was Precentor of the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel in Bath (see illustration). This setting comes from his second (of three) collections of "hymns as they are sung at the Right Honourable the Countess of Huntingdon's chappel in Bath". The general congregation (sometimes divided into men and women) should sing the Air, accompanying harmonies to be taken by the choir.
Lyrics: William Hammond

Awake and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb;
Wake every heart and every tongue
To praise the Saviour's name.

Sing of his dying love;
Sing of his rising power;
Sing how he intercedes above
For those whose sins He bore.

Sing, till we feel our hearts
Ascending with our tongues:
Sing till the love of sin departs,
And grace inspires our songs.

Sing on your heav'nly way,
Ye ransomed sinners sing:
Sing on, rejoicing ev'ry day
In Christ th'eternal king.

Soon shall ye here him say
"Ye blessed children come";
Soon will he call you hence away,
To take his wand'rers home.
