044 - Awake, My Soul
Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run;
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice !
Shine on me, Lord; new life impart !
Fresh ardors kindle in my heart;
One ray of Thine all quickening light
Dispels the clouds and dark of night.
Direct, control, suggest this day
All I design, or do, or say,
That all my power's, with all their might,
In Thy sole glory may unite.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
