Awake, awake to love and work!
The lark is in the sky;
The fields are wet with dia­mond dew;
The worlds awake to cry
Their bless­ings on the Lord of life,
As He goes meek­ly by.

Come, let thy voice be one with theirs,
Shout with their shout of praise;
See how the gi­ant sun soars up,
Great lord of years and days!
So let the love of Je­sus come
And set thy soul ablaze.

To give and give, and give again,
What God hath giv­en thee;
To spend thy­self nor count the cost;
To serve right glo­ri­ous­ly
The God who gave all worlds that are,
And all that are to be.
