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.

Now from my bed of sleep I rise

Now from my bed of sleep I rise

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Now from my bed of sleep I rise,
My voice to God I raise;
This is my morning sacrifice:
To sing my maker's praise.

2 His blessed angels kept my guard!
While sleeping here I lay;
And by the mercies of my Lord,
I see another day.

3 The night is fled and darkness gone,
And I awake to see
The day approach with heav'nly dawn,
And blessings unto me.

4 While many of my fellow men,
Lay on their dying bed!
And thus oppress'd with mortal pain,
Are number'd with the dead.

5 But I was spar'd and truly blest,
What grade to me was shown!
I lay secure in peace to rest
To see the rising Sun.
