Awake, my soul, in joyful lays, Oh, glory, hallelujah! And sing thy great Redeemer’s praise, Don’t you love God! Glory, hallelujah! Chorus: There’s union in heav’n, And there’s union in my soul, Oh, glory, hallelujah! Sweet music in Zion’s beginning to roll, Don’t you love God! Glory, hallelujah! He saw me ruined by the fall, Yet loved me, notwithstanding all; (Chorus) I often feel my sinful heart, Prone from my Savior to depart, (Chorus) But though I have Him oft forgot, His loving kindness changes not!
