1 O Thou who all things canst control,
Chase sloth and slumber from my soul;
With joy and fear, with love and awe,
Give me to keep Thy perfect law.
2 O may one beam of Thy blest light
Pierce through, dispel the shades of night:
Touch my cold breast with heavenly fire,
With holy, conquering zeal inspire.
3 With steps unwavering, undismayed,
Give me in all Thy paths to tread.
Rise, Lord, stir up Thy quickening power
And wake me, that I sleep no more.
4 Single of heart O may I be!
Nothing may I desire but Thee;
Far, far from me the world remove,
And all that holds me from Thy Love!
