568. Rise, My Soul, Adore Your Maker

1 Rise, my soul, adore your Maker;
angels sing, praises bring,
with them be partaker.
Father, Lord of ev'ry spirit,
in your might, lead me right
through my Savior’s merit.

2 O my God, be ever near me;
for your rest, for your feast,
more and more prepare me.
Still assure me of my calling;
keep me near, in your care,
saved from final falling.

3 Lord, be ever my protector;
with me stay, all the day,
ever my director.
Holy, holy, holy giver
of all good, life and food,
reign adored forever.
