Awake, my soul

[27 second introduction]

Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run
Shake off dull sloth and joyful rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice


Lord, I my vows to Thee renew
Disperse my sins as morning dew
Guard my first spring of thought and will
And with Thyself my spirit fill


Direct, control, suggest this day
All I design or do or say
That all my pow'rs with all their might
In Thy sole glory may unite


Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise God, all creatues here below
Praise God above, ye heav'nly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
