Hymn/Song Information

Awake my soul lift up thine eyes See where thy foe




Awake, my soul! lift up thine eyes;
See where thy foes against thee rise,
In long array, a numerous host;
Awake, my soul! or those art lost.


Here giant danger threatening stands,
Mustering his pale, terrific bands;
There pleasureís silken banners spread,
And willing souls are captive led.


Se where rebellious passions rage,
And fierce desires and lusts engage;
The meanest foe of all the train
Has thousands and ten thousands slain.


Thou treadíst upon enchanted ground;
Perils and snares beset thee round;
Beware of all; guard every part,
But most, the traitor in thy heart.


Come then, my soul! now learn to wield
The weight of thine immortal shield;
Put on the armour from above,
Of heavenly truth and heavenly love.


The terror and the charm repel,
And powers of earth, and powers of hell;
The man of Calvary triumphed here;ó
Why should his faithful followers fear?


Clad in the armour, from above.
Of heavenly truth, and heavenly love,
Come now, my soul, the charm repel.
And powers of earth,and powers of hell.
