O Lord of life, Thy quickening voice
1 O Lord of life, Thy quickening voice
Awakes my morning song;
In gladsome words I would rejoice
That I to Thee belong.
2 I see Thy light, I feel Thy wind,
The world, it is Thy word;
Whatever wakes my heart and mind,
Thy presence is, my Lord.
3 Therefore, I choose my highest part,
And turn my face to Thee;
Therefore, I stir my inmost heart
To worship fervently.
4 Lord, let me live and will this day, Keep rising from the dead, Lord make my spirit good and gay, Give me my daily bread
5 Within my heart, speak, Lord, speak on,
My heart alive to keep
Till comes the night, and, labour done,
In Thee I fall asleep.
