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.
