Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

183. Awake, My Soul, in Joyful Lays

1 Awake, my soul, in joyful lays,
and sing your great Redeemer's praise.
He justly claims a song from me,
his loving-kindness is so free.
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
his loving-kindness is so free.

2 He saw me ruined in the fall,
yet loved me not withstanding all,
and saved me from my lost estate,
his loving-kindness is so great.
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
his loving-kindness is so great.

3 Through mighty hosts of cruel foes,
where earth and hell my way oppose,
he safely leads my soul along,
his loving-kindness is so strong.
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
his loving-kindness is so strong.

4 So when I pass death's gloomy vale,
and life and mortal pow'rs shall fail,
O may my last expiring breath
his loving-kindness sing in death.
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
his loving-kindness sing in death.

5 Then shall I mount, and soar away
to the bright world of endless day;
there shall I sing, with sweet surprise,
his loving-kindness in the skies,
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
His loving-kindness in the skies.
