Part 1

1 Awake, my soul, and with the sun
your daily stage of duty run;
shake off your sleep, and joyful rise
to make your morning sacrifice.

2 Redeem your mis-spent time that's past
and live this day as if your last;
improve your talent with due care,
for God's great Day yourself prepare.

3 Let all your speaking be sincere,
your conscience as the noonday clear;
think how all-seeing God surveys
your secret thoughts and all your ways.

Part 2

4 Give praise to God, who safely kept
and well refreshed me while I slept:
grant, Lord, that when from death I wake
I may of endless life partake.

5 To you my vows I here renew:
disperse my sins as morning dew;
guard my first springs of thought and will
and with yourself my spirit fill.

6 Direct, control, suggest this day
all I desire or do or say;
that all my powers with all their might
for your sole glory may unite.


7 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow
in heaven above and earth below;
one God, three persons, we adore
to him be praise for evermore!
