There are two distinct songs with this first line.

First Hymn:

1 Awake, O sleeper, rise from death,
  and Christ shall give you light,
  so learn his love— its length and breadth,
  its fullness, depth, and height.

2 To us on earth he came to bring
  from sin and fear release,
  to give the Spirit's unity,
  the very bond of peace.

3 There is one Body and one hope,
  one Spirit and one call,
  one Lord, one Faith, and one Baptism,
  one Father of us all.

4 Then walk in love as Christ has loved,
  who died that he might save;
  with kind and gentle hearts forgive
  as God in Christ forgave.
5 For us Christ lived, for us he died
  and conquered in the strife.
  Awake, arise, go forth in faith,
  and Christ shall give you life.
