Morning

Representative Text

1 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.

2 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew.
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
guard my first springs of thought and will;
and with Thyself my spirit fill.

3 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.

4 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise Him all creatures here below;
praise Him above, ye heav'enly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
