Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Full Text

1 Awake in Jesus—O how blest,
To be forever on His breast;
No sorrow now, and no more tears,
But peace and joy that banish fears.

Awake in Jesus,
Awake in Jesus,
To bear His likeness forevermore.

2 Awake in Jesus—sweetest frame,
To feel His breath like living flame;
And hear my loving Father say,
Now all thy tears are wiped away. [Refrain]

3 Awake in Jesus—heav’nly light,
Whose presence drives away my night;
Who bids me all His glory trace,
And see my Saviour face to face. [Refrain]
