 morning dew

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.
