Repeat last two lines each verse
Awake my soul, an offʼring bring,
To Jesus our exalted King;
Sing to Him Who reigns above,
Incarnate fount of grace and love.
In awe we stand upon this ground,
His wisdom and His powʼr astound;
All His glories we behold,
In heavʼn and earth His storyʼs told.
Then to this world, Heʼs shown His grace,
He came to rescue Adamʼs race;
Our Redeemer, our High Priest,
From sin and death to bring release.
Awake my soul, arise and sing,
Eternal praise to Christ our King;
In His Church, His name confessed,
We worship Him among the blessed.
