Awake Me With the Dawn!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Awake me with the dawn,
To early seek Thy face;
That I may put Your armour on,
With grace to win the race.

Awake me from this sloth,
This sleep of sensual death;
That hinders me from Christian growth,
Breathe on me with Thy breath.

Awake and stir my mind,
To think and meditate;
To see the spots where I’ve been blind,
And all my sin forsake.

Awake my conscience too,
And make it smart within;
That I again, from Scripture’s view,
Know sin as awful sin.

Awake me to Thy grace,
Refresh and warm my heart;
To see the love of Jesus Christ,
And never from Him part.

(Tune: Dennis; Trentham; SM))
