AWAKE, my soul! stretch every nerve,

And press with vigor on:

A heavenly race demands thy zeal,

And an immortal crown.

'Tis God's all-animating voice

That calls thee from on high:

'Tis his own hand presents the prize

To thine aspiring eye.

A cloud of witnesses around

Hold thee in full survey;

Forget the steps already trod,

And urge thy onward way.

Blessed Saviour, introduced by thee,

Have we our race begun;

And, crowned with victory, at thy feet

We'll lay our honors down.
