Hymn/Song Information

Awake my drowsy soul awake And view the




Awake, my drowsy soul, awake,
And view the threatening scene:
Legions of foes encamp around,
And treachery lurks within.


‘Tis not this mortal life alone
These enemies assail;
How canst thou hope for future bliss,
If their attempts prevail?


Then to the work of God awake —
Behold thy Master near —
The various, arduous task pursue
With vigour, and with fear.


The awful register goes on,
The account will surely come;
And opening day, or closing night
May bear me to my doom.


Tremendous thought! how deep it strikes;
Yet like a dream it flies,
Till God’s own voice the slumbers chase
From these deluded eyes.
