Selected Stanzas:

J. C. Jacobi, in his Psalmodia Germanica, 1722.

My Soul awake, and tender
To God, thy great Defender
Thy Prayer and Thanksgiving,
Because thou art still living.
Last Night, when lying senseless,
And utterly defenceless,
I was in greatest Danger
From Darkness and its Ranger.

John Kelly, in his Paul Gerhardt's Spiritual Songs, 1867.

1. Awake, my heart! be singing,
Praise to thy Maker bringing,
Of every good the Giver,
Who men protecteth ever.
2. As shades of night spread over
Earth as a pall did cover,
Then Satan sought to have me
But God was near to save me.
