Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Awake, my soul, my mind awake

Awake, my soul, my mind awake

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Awake my soul, my mind awake!
And with the ang'lic host partake,
And join with them thy voice to raise:
And sing the great Creators' praise.

2 O may the Lord my soul inspire!
And fill my heart with pure desire;
And may my songs of praise and love
Reach far beyond the skies above.

3 I praise my Lord who safely kept,
And guarded me thus while I slept:
And I am spar'd again to rise,
And view his blessings with mine eyes.

4 Had not my God protected me,
What wretched creature would I be;
I might have wak'd in endless pain,
Where I should seek relief in vain.

5 But O what off'rings can I bring
To thee, my gracious Lord and King!
Thy gracious hand for me prepar'd,
That I am yet through mercy spar'd.

6 Thy blessings compass me around;
Thy grace on ev'ry side is found:
My chief concern it e'er should be,
My God! to praise and worship thee.
