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.
