Good morning, friends! From the pen of Thomas Ken, here’s a song for hopeful hearts to sing as we step into a new day. I’ve got to believe our lives will be enriched and our acts of service enlarged when these words mark our devotion, reflect our inclinations, and give rise to worship. Because He is worthy.
Awake, My Soul, And With the Sun
Thomas Ken, 1674
Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run
Shake off fluff and joyful rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
Wake and lift thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part
Who all night long unwearied sing
High praise to the eternal king.
Direct, control, suggest this day
All I do, desire or say
That all my pow’rs with all their might
In thy glory may unite.
Praise God, praise God all creatures here below
Praise God, praise God from whom all blessings flow.
