89 (L.M.) Samuel Medley

Awake, my soul, in joyful lays,

And sing thy great Redeemer's praise

He justly claims a song from me,

His loving-kindness, O how free!

He saw me ruined in the fall,

Yet loved me notwithstanding all;

He saved me from my lost estate,

His loving-kindness, O how great!

Though num'rous hosts of mighty foes,

Though earth and hell my way oppose

He safely leads my soul along,

His loving-kindness, O how strong!

When troubles, like a gloomy cloud,

Have gathered thick and thundered loud,

He near my soul has always stood,

His loving-kindness, O how good!

Often I feel my sinful heart

Prone from my Jesus to depart,

But though I have Him oft forgot,

His loving-kindness changes not.

Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale,

Soon all my mortal pow'rs must fail;

Oh! May my last expiring breath

His loving-kindness sing in death.

Then let me mount and soar away

To the bright world of endless day,

And sing with rapture and surprise

His loving-kindness in the skies.
