Awake my soul, and with God’s Son
Shake off all my sin and arise.
By His Grace my life’s race is run;
Because of Your pure sacrifice.
Your influence of Light Divine
Reflects Heaven’s propitious ways.
Light Your Light to forever shine
Our ardent love and cheerful praise.
I wake and lift my joyful heart
To You I unwearied will sing,
While Your angels sing their own part
High praises to our Lord and King.
All praise to You; my safety’s kept;
Then when from death I shall awake;
Refreshed from chaos while I slept
So Your endless Light I’ll partake.
Lord, Heaven’s wherever You are;
Apart from You is hell to me.
Dear Lord, never from me depart;
Even one moment gone from Thee.
Direct, control, and guide my way;
Take all my sins with all their might;
That all I design, do, or say
In Your sole glory I’ll unite.
If I do not wake or rise again;
And You are not there to be enjoyed;
Heaven, itself, would I distain
And all hymns would not be employed.
