Father This Slumber Shake


Father, this slumber shake
From off my heavy soul!
Say to me now,-awake! awake!
And I will make thee whole!

Touch with Thy strengthening hand;
Arouse me in this hour;
And make me fully understand
The thunder of Thy power.

Give me on Thee to call;
Always to watch and pray,
Lest I into temptation fall,
And cast my shield away.

For each assault prepared
And watchful may I be,
Forever standing on my guard,
And looking unto Thee.
