My soul shall worship Thee

My soul shall worship Thee

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 My soul shall worship thee,
My Sovereign Lord on high!
I 'wake another day to see,
Which cheers the 'wakening eye.

2 The birds that mount the air,
They lisp their morning praise:
And should not I likewise prepare?
To shew my Saviour's grace.

3 The morning light appears,
And darkness flies away;
The heart of ev'ry creature cheers,
To meet the rising day.

4 Jesus, my rising Sun,
My soul desires to view,
Thy dawning in my heart begun!
My darkness banish'd too.

5 O cause thy light to shine,
With all its life and pow'r:
And in that dark'ned heart of mine,
Have light for evermore.
