Hymn/Song Information

My God I now from sleep awake The sole




My God, I now from sleep awake;
The sole possession of me take;
From midnight terrors me secure,
And guard my heart from thoughts impure.


Blest angels, while we silent lie,
You hallelujahs sing on high;
You joyful hymn the Ever-blest,
Before the throne, and never rest.


I with your choir celestial join,
In offering up a hymn divine;
With you in heaven I hope to dwell,
And bid the night and world farewell.


O may I always ready stand,
With my lamp burning in my hand;
May I in sight of heaven rejoice,
Whene’er I hear the Bridegroom’s voice.


Blest Jesus, thou, on heaven intent,
Whole nights hast in devotion spent;
But I, frail creature, soon am tired,
And all my zeal is soon expired.


Shine on me, Lord, new life impart,
Fresh ardours kindle in my heart:
One ray of thy all-quickening light
Dispels the sloth and clouds of night.


Lord, lest the tempter me surprise,
Watch over thine own sacrifice:
All loose, all idle thoughts cast out,
And make my very dreams devout.


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!
