Awake my heart, my soul arise

Awake my heart, my soul arise

Representative Text

1 Awake, my heart! my soul, arise!
This is the day believers prize;
Improve this Sabbath, then, with care;
Another may not be thy share.

2 O, solemn thought! Lord, give me power,
Wisely to fill up every hour;
O for the wings of faith and love
To bear my longing heart above!

3 Jesus, assist, nor let me fail
To worship thee within the vail,
To glorify thy matchless grace,
To see the beauties of thy face.

4 Be with me in thy house to-day,
And tune my heart to praise and pray;
Command thy word to fall like dew,
Refreshing, quickening all anew.

5 Call forth my thoughts, and let them rove
O'er the green pastures of thy love;
O let not sin prevent my rest,
Nor keep me from my Saviour's breast.
