My Soul Awake Thy Rest Forsake

My soul awake, thy rest forsake,
And greet the morning light!
With song arise, glad sacrifice
For mercies of the night.

With courage dressed, strong-hearted, blest,
Fulfill thy work abroad;
Fearless and true, thy way pursue,
A happy child of God.

Amid the strife of daily life,
Amid its noontide heat,
Fear not to miss thy secret bliss-
The rest of sonship sweet.

In liberty of holy glee,
Accept thy childhood’s part;
And thou shalt find, by faith enshrined,
The Father in thy heart.
