Hymn/Song Information

Awake my soul to joyful lays




Awake, my soul, to joyful lays,
And sing thy great Redeemer’s praise;
He justly claims a song from me -
His lovingkindness, O how free!

Lovingkindness, lovingkindness,
His lovingkindness, O how free!



He saw me ruined in the fall,
Yet loved me notwithstanding all;
He saved me from my lost estate -
His lovingkindness, O how great!

Lovingkindness, lovingkindness,
His lovingkindness, O how free!



Though numerous hosts of mighty foes,
Though earth and hell my way oppose,
He safely leads my soul along -
His lovingkindness, O how strong!

Lovingkindness, lovingkindness,
His lovingkindness, O how free!



When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gathered thick and thundered loud,
He near my soul has always stood -
His lovingkindness, O how good!

Lovingkindness, lovingkindness,
His lovingkindness, O how free!



Often I feel my sinful heart
Prone from my Jesus to depart;
But though I have him oft forgot,
His lovingkindness changes not.

Lovingkindness, lovingkindness,
His lovingkindness, O how free!



Soon I shall pass the gloomy vale,
Soon all my mortal powers must fail;
O! may my last expiring breath
His lovingkindness sing in death.

Lovingkindness, lovingkindness,
His lovingkindness, O how free!



Then let me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day;
And sing with raptures and surprise,
His lovingkindness in the skies.

Lovingkindness, lovingkindness,
His lovingkindness, O how free!
