Awake, my soul, rouse every power

Awake, my soul, rouse every power

Author: Simon Browne
Published in 14 hymnals

Full Text

1 Awake, my soul! rouse ev'ry pow'r;
Thy Christian dignity display:
Let lust and passion reign no more;
No longer own their lawless sway.

2 Thy temper meek and humble be,
Content and pleas'd with ev'ry state;
From dire revenge and envy free,
And wild ambition to be great.

3 Confine thy roving appetites;
From this vain world withdraw thine eyes;
Fix them on those divine delights,
Which angels taste above the skies.

4 With eager zeal pursue the prize;
Each fleeting hour of life improve:
This course will speak thee truly wise,
And raise thee to the world above.

Simon Browne was born at Shepton Mallet, Somersetshire, about 1680. He began to preach as an "Independent" before he was twenty years of age, and was soon after settled at Portsmouth. In 1716, he became pastor in London. In 1723, he met with some misfortunes, which preyed upon his mind, and produced that singular case of monomania, recorded in the text-books of Mental Philosophy; he thought that God had "annihilated in him the thinking substance, and utterly divested him of consciousness." "Notwithstanding," says Toplady, "instead of having no soul, he wrote, reasoned, and prayed as if he had two." He died in 1732. His publications number twenty-three, of which some are still in repute. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins,… Go to person page >
