1 Upraised from sleep, to Thee we kneel,
As day doth break;
To Thee, O Lord, aloud we sing,
To Thee the song of angels bring;
For mercy’s sake,
Oh, pity take,
O Holy, Holy, Holy.

2 Thou, Lord, hast from my couch of rest
Uplifted me;
Oh, light my mind; oh, light my heart,
And ope my lips to take their part
In praising Thee,
Blest Trinity,
O Holy, Holy, Holy.
