Awake our souls stretch every nerve And




Awake, my soul, stretch every nerve,
And press with vigour on;
A heavenly race demands thy zeal,
|:And an immortal crown. :|


A cloud of witnesses around
Hold thee in full survey;
Forget the steps already trod,
|:And onward urge thy way. :|


íTis Godís all animating voice
That calls thee from on high;
íTis His own hand presents the prize
|:To thine aspiring eye. :|


Then wake, my soul, stretch every nerve,
And press with vigor on,
A heavenly race demands thy zeal,
|:And an immortal crown. :|


That prize with peerless glories bright,
Which shall new lustre boast,
When victors' wreaths and monarch's gems
|:Shall blend in common dust.:|


Blest Saviour, introduced by thee,
Have I my race begun;
And, crowned with victory, at thy feet
|:I'll lay my honours down.:|


---Alternative verses---

|: And an immortal crown. :|


Awake, my soul, stretch every nerve,
And press with vigour on;
A heavenly race demands thy zeal,
|: A bright immortal crown. :|


A cloud of witnesses around,
Hold us in full survey;
Forget the steps already trod,
|: And onward urge your way. :|


ĎTis Godís all-animating voice
That calls us from on high;
ĎTis his own hand presents the prize,

Blessed Saviour, through thy grace alone,
Have we our race begun;
And crowned with victory at thy feet
|: Weíll lay our honours down. :|
