Sinner Rouse Thee From Thy Sleep


Sinner, rouse thee from thy sleep,
Wake, and o’er thy folly weep;
Raise thy spirit dark and dead,
Jesus waits His light to shed.

Wake from sleep, arise from death,
See the bright and living path;
Watchful tread that path; be wise,
Leave thy folly, seek the skies.

Leave thy folly, cease from crime,
From this hour redeem thy time;
Life secure without delay,
Evil is the mortal day.

Be not blind and foolish still;
Call’d of Jesus, learn His will:
Jesus calls from death and night,
Jesus waits to shed His light.

Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America,
