Verses: 
6

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
Let all thy converse be sincere,
Thy conscience as the noonday clear;
For God's all-seeing eye surveys
Thy secret thoughts, thy words and ways.

Verse 3
All praise to thee, who safe has kept
And hast refreshed me while I slept;
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake
I may of endless life partake.

Verse 4
Lord, I my vows to thee renew;
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
Guard my first springs of thought and will,
And with thyself my spirit fill.

Verse 5
Direct, control, suggest, this day,
All I may think, or do, or say;
That all my powers, with all their might,
In thy sole glory may unite.

Verse 6
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.
