"Awake, My Soul, and with the Sun" by Thomas Ken, 1637-1711 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942)p.380 1. Awake, my soul, and with the sun Thy daily stage of duty run; Shake off dull sloth and joyful rise To pay thy morning scarifice. 2. Let all thy converse be sincere, Thy conscience as the noonday clear; Think how the all-seeing God thy ways And all thy secret thought surveys. 3. All praise to Thee, who safe hast kept And hast refreshed me whilst I slept. Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake, I may of endless light partake. 4. Lord, I my vows to Thee renew; Disperse my sins as morning dew; Guard my first springs of thought and will And will Thyself my spirit fill. 5. Direct, control, suggest, this day All I design or do or say That all my powers, with all their might, In Thy sole glory may unite. 6. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host: Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
