Representative Text

1 Rise, O my soul, to higher joys awaking,
Rise and obey thy blessèd Master’s will;
Now from the world and all its pleasures breaking,
Live unto Him, and be thou faithful still.

Live unto Him whose gentle hand will guide thee
Safe thro’ the ills that mark this fleeting shore;
Live unto Him who walketh still beside thee,
Live unto Him who liveth evermore.

2 Rise, O my soul, and overcome temptation,
Stand like the brave amid the battle strife;
Strong in the might and strength of thy salvation,
Hold fast the hope of everlasting life. [Refrain]

3 Rise, O my soul, above thy care and sadness,
Rise and rejoice, thy song of rapture swell;
Praise Him who turns thy sorrow into gladness,
Trust in the Lord, who doeth all things well. [Refrain]

4 Rise, O my soul, the way grows bright before thee,
Soon wilt thou reach the sunny heights above;
Haste, haste thee on to glory, unto glory,
Till thou art lost in thy Redeemer’s praise. [Refrain]
