    Verse 1
    Awake, my soul, and with the sun
    Thy daily stage of duty run;
    Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise,
    To pay thy morning sacrifice.

    Verse 2
    All praise to Thee, who safe has kept,
    And hast refreshed me whilst I slept.
    Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
    I may of endless light partake.

    Verse 4
    Direct, control, suggest, this day,
    All I design, or do, or say,
    That all my powers, with all their might,
    In Thy sole glory may unite.

    Verse 5
    Redeem thy misspent moments past,
    And live this day as if thy last;
    Thy talents to improve take care;
    For the great day thyself prepare.

    Verse 6
    By influence of the Light divine
    Let thy own light to others shine;
    Reflect all Heaven's propitious rays
    In ardent love, and cheerful praise.

    Verse 7
    Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
    Praise Him, all creatures here below;
    Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
    Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
