Awake O Lord as in the time of old Come




Awake, O Lord, as in the time of old!
Come down, O Spirit,
in Thy power and might!
For lack of Thee our hearts
are strangely cold,
Our minds but blindly
grope toward the light.


Doubts are abroad:
make Thou these doubts to cease!
Fears are within:
set Thou these fears at rest!
Strife is among us:
melt that strife to peace!
Change marches onward:
may all change be blest!


It is not knowledge
that we chiefly need,
Though knowledge sanctified
by Thee is dear:
It is the will and power to live indeed;
It is the constant thought
that God is near.


Make us to be what
we profess to be;
Let prayer be prayer,
and praise be heartfelt praise;
From unreality, O set us free,
And let our words
be echoed by our ways.


Turn us, good Lord,
and so shall we be turned:
Let every passion
grieving Thee be stilled:
Then shall our race be won,
our guerdons earned,
Our Master looked on,
and our joy fulfilled.
