210. Awake, my soul, and with the sun

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

2 Wake, and lift up yourself, my heart,
and with the angels take your part,
who all night long unwearied sing
high praise to the eternal King.

3 Lord, I my vows to you renew;
disperse my sins as morning dew.
guard my first springs of thought and will,
and with yourself my spirit fill.

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

4 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise him, all creatures here below;
praise him above, you heavenly host:
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
